The Milwaukee Brewers clinched the National League Central Division title on Sunday but during the post-game celebration, they likely lost a key player for the remainder of the season.
According to a report from Todd Rosiak, 2020 NL Rookie of the Year Devin Williams had a few drinks and then punched a wall and broke his hand.
The injury will require surgery and his season is likely over.
“If I could take it back, I would,” Williams said.
Devin Williams just told reporters he punched a wall following the clinch celebration Sunday after having a few drinks and fractured his right hand. The injury will require surgery and will likely end his season.
