Report: Brewers shortstop Jean Segura back in Milwaukee

Publish date:

A day after Milwaukee Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said he was unable to contact shortstop Jean Segura, who was home in the Dominican Republic following the death of his 9-month old son, manager Ron Roenicke said Segura is back in Milwaukee and will travel with the team to Washington, D.C. for their series with the Nationals, reports Greg Matzek of 620 WTMJ. 

Roenicke said that Segura may not play every day. The shortstop was placed on the bereavement list on Saturday after finding out after Friday's Brewers game that his son had died. 

On Wednesday, Melvin said that he'd been trying to call Segura and had left messages but hadn't heard back. He said whenever Segura did rejoin the Brewers, the team would support "whatever Jean decides" when it comes to readiness to play.
