KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Brewers first baseman Eric Thames will be out at least a couple of months after tearing the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb during Tuesday night's victory in Kansas City.

Thames had an MRI exam on Wednesday that revealed the torn ligament. He was placed on the disabled list and right-hander Brandon Woodruff was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Thames plans to undergo more tests before a decision is made on whether to have surgery.
