The Brewers have placed Zach Braddock on the disabled list due to his sleep disorder.
According to team officials, Braddock has a serious sleep problem. He has been seeing specialists for the past week and they have confirmed that he suffers from a sleep disorder.
Braddock was sent to the disabled list last Tuesday after playing Monday night against Atlanta.
“It’s just a sleep issue that we’ve had tests on in the past week,” said the reliever. “Right now, the baseball schedule isn’t conducive to figuring it out. It’s the best interests of mine and the team to take some time off and deal with it.”
He concluded: “I’m not a doctor but I’m guessing it’s something I’ve had my entire life.”
Braddock will sit out the next 15 days. This MLB season, he is 0-1 with a 2.79 ERA in just over 9 innings.
