(PHOENIX) — Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura status is questionable for the team’s season opener Monday against Atlanta due to soreness behind his throwing shoulder.
Segura has been sidelined since March 18 due to the injury. He has been able to swing the bat but has been unable to play in the field.
The 24-year-old had an MRI on the shoulder which came back negative.
Still, the Brewers are being cautious with their All-Star shortstop.
“We’re day to day. As long as it’s still there, Dr. Raasch and the medical staff don’t want him in there,” Brewers skipper Ron Roenicke said. “I’m not going to say it’s not [a DL situation]. They checked it and it’s nothing with the rotator cuff or the labrum. There’s a muscle in there that he strained. When you strain something, sometimes they go away in a couple of days and sometimes it’s a week.”
Segura hit .294 with 12 home runs, 74 runs scored, 49 RBIs and 44 stolen bases last season, his first full year in the big leagues.
