Corbin Burnes is on the 10-day injured list with a strained left oblique. But the biggest surprise on Milwaukee’s 28-man roster for the wild-card round was the exclusion of reliever Devin Williams, who will miss the series with a reported arm injury.

In 27 innings this season, Williams allowed just one earned run while logging a 0.33 ERA, 0.86 FIP and 17.7 K/9.

Brett Anderson, who started 10 games for Milwaukee this season, was also left off the roster. Manager Craig Counsell will have 12 pitchers and 16 position players to work with against the Dodgers.

Game 1 between Milwaukee and Los Angeles is set for Wednesday night at 9 p.m. Tune in to FOX Sports Wisconsin at 8 p.m. for a one-hour pregame edition of Brewers Live.
