The pitcher for Milwaukee Brewers, Devin Williams, is likely to sit out the upcoming games due to a hand fracture sustained during the team’s rejoicing over clinching the NL Central title.

After a triumphant 8-4 victory against the New York Mets on Sunday, the Brewers celebrated winning their division. In the aftermath of the game, Williams, overwhelmed with emotion and inebriated, punched a wall. Prior to the Brewers’ match against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, David Stearns, the team’s president of baseball operations, mentioned that surgery might be necessary for the injury. Nonetheless, there is a possibility that Williams could return for the World Series if Milwaukee advances, despite being short one player.

“I believe it will be a collective effort rather than relying on a single player to step in,” remarked Craig Counsell, the team’s manager. “When you mention ‘role,’ it’s different from what we saw during the regular season.”

“Devin attempted to throw [on Tuesday] with this situation,” Stearns revealed. “This piece of information was not known to us.” It was only after this that the 27-year-old identified a problem and sought an x-ray through the team’s medical staff. Williams has since expressed remorse to his fellow teammates and the Brewers’ supporters for his absence in the upcoming matches.
