Posted at 8:29 AM, Oct 17, 2018

Brewers' pitcher Gio Gonzalez will no longer be on the team's postseason roster after suffering an ankle injury in Game 4 of the NLCS.

According to ESPN's Pedro Gomez, the Brewers made the decision and will not be able to have Gonzalez for the rest of the NCLS or World Series if the Brewers were to advance.

Gonzalez suffered the injury after Dodgers' Yasiel Puig hit a pitch that came right back to the mound. Gonzalez stepped awkwardly off the mound and began limping. 

Gonzalez attempted to stay in the game and threw one pitch before Manager Craig Counsell came out and took him out of the game.

The Brewers would end up losing the game in 13 innings. Game 5 is scheduled for today at 4:05 p.m.
