Brewers’ Willy Adames wants to play all 162 games this season

Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames (27) cheers on his teammates during the eighth inning of their game against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wis.

ATLANTA – Having started all 28 games and played 246 of a possible 247 innings at shortstop for the Milwaukee Brewers heading into their series finale with the Atlanta Braves on Sunday at Truist Park, Willy Adames was asked when his first game off might be.

“Never,” he said. “We have a day off next Thursday. I want to play every day.”

With the start the indefatigable 26-year-old is off to so far this season, Craig Counsell might honor his request.

OK, maybe not.

But the manager left little doubt that Adames – health willing – is going to be in the lineup almost every time he fills one out.

“I think Willy’s going to be out there a lot,” he said. “As much as we can get him out there.”
