The Brewers made a roster move prior to today's game, activating outfielder Domingo Santana from the 15-day DL. Santana had been dealing with a sore shoulder, but only needed the minimum stint on the DL to recover. He had been on rehab assignment at Biloxi since Tuesday of this week, playing in three games and going a combined 2-for-6 with a home run, two runs scored, and four walks with one strikeout.

Domingo Santana had been struggling a bit before going on the DL. Over 133 PA this season, Santana has posted a batting line of .239/.353/.381. His walk rate of 14.3% is great, but he has also been striking out 33.8% of the time. Overall, his offensive production has been average, posting a 101 wRC+, but his defense has hurt the team, posting a -43.9 UZR/150. It's important to note that it's small sample sizes (especially in the context of defense), but it's still not a number anyone wants to see.

Meanwhile, Keon Broxton will return to Colorado Springs for now. Broxton had been hot at Colorado Springs before his recall, but the numbers didn't translate to the majors. He went a combined 4-for-22 over 10 games. Even with Ryan Braun dealing with various aches and opportunities available in the outfield, he couldn't take advantage of the playing time he did get. Hopefully he can stay hot in Triple-A and wait for his next chance.
