The Milwaukee Brewers have placed shortstop Jean Segura on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right pinky finger, the team announced.
Segura, 25, was hitting .262 with 14 runs scored, 12 RBIs and six steals in 33 games. He was a late scratch for Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox with what the team called a 'sore' finger. Milwaukee recalled 21-year-old infielder Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Colorado Springs to take his roster spot.
Losing Segura is the latest blow for the Brewers, who are currently 12-23 and have been without All-Star catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who hit the DL on April 21, for nearly a month. Milwaukee was also without outfielder Carlos Gomez for two weeks in April after he suffered a hamstring injury.
Third baseman Aramis Ramirez has missed the past six games with a sore back, though he hopes to return Friday.
