Brandon Woodruff hasn’t taken the hill for the Milwaukee Brewers in nearly one month. He was placed on the injured list with a sprained ankle in late May. More recently, he’s been dealing with Raynaud’s syndrome, which causes a “cold and numb sensation” in the fingers.

Woodruff advanced in his recovery by throwing off of a mound two weeks ago and, on Thursday, dominated to the tune of seven strikeouts over five innings and one run allowed in a High-A rehab outing. According to Lance LeQue of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, the two-time All-Star is confident with where he’s at.

“I had a little bit of an unfortunate thing that popped up with the Raynaud’s, and the ankle’s been good, so it’s really just been about when can I come back and throw, and just build up?” Woodruff said, per LeQue. “I wanted to come into this and try to prepare for the next start. I think if you go out there and you’re just going to throw strikes, these guys will knock you around the yard. They were aggressive, so it was fun. I still had to make some pitches, but I got to do everything I wanted to do.”

The 29-year-old righty had a 5-3 record with a 4.74 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 53 strikeouts over 43 2/3 innings covering nine starts before landing on the IL. Woodruff finished fifth in the NL Cy Young voting in 2021 — teammate Corbin Burnes was the — after registering career-best numbers in ERA (2.56), WHIP (0.97) and strikeouts (211), while recording career highs in innings pitched (179 1/3) and games started (30) as well.
