The Brewers placed shortstop Jean Segura on the bereavement list on Saturday after the 24-year-old left the team to return to his native Dominican Republic following the death of his 9-month-old son, the team announced.

Manager Ron Roenicke said Segura did not learn of his son's death until after Friday's 7-6 loss to the Cardinals.

"Obviously it's tough on him," Roenicke said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He didn't learn about it until after the game was over and one of the players came over and told him.

"I didn't know what to say to him other than give him a hug, tell him we're here for him," Roenicke added. "He had a tough time. All the guys came by."

Roenicke said after Friday's game that the team would not address the media and would shut the clubhouse doors, citing a death in the family of an unnamed player.

Segura, who was an All-Star last season, is hitting .232/.266/.315 with four homers and 23 RBIs in 88 games this season.
