Milwaukee Brewers reliever Corey Knebel is headed for a second opinion on his elbow as he deals with a damaged UCL.

Knebel took a break from throwing this week due to elbow problems. The Brewers acknowledged on Thursday that there was an issue with the All-Star closer/reliever.

Manager Craig Counsell said Knebel had been pitching with the issue for a long time and will go for a second opinion.

Brewers GM David Stearns said Knebel has a damaged UCL.

In addition to the elbow problems Knebel is facing, Jeremy Jeffress is dealing with a shoulder injury. The combination of the two relievers being hurt explains the team’s interest in Craig Kimbrel.
