Brewers place Mike Brosseau on injured list, recall Pablo Reyes

Brosseau left last night’s game with an oblique injury

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers announced ahead of Tuesday night’s game against the Dodgers that they have placed Mike Brosseau on the injured list and recalled utility man Pablo Reyes.

Brosseau left Monday night’s game with what was originally described as right rib cage discomfort. He later confirmed that it was an oblique issue that had been bothering him for weeks. After it forced him out of last night’s contest, the Brewers decided to play it safe and give him time to recover.

The ailment may explain Brosseau’s recent struggles at the plate. He has been one of the team’s best hitters against left-handed pitching this year but notched just three hits in the month of August.

The versatile Reyes will take Brosseau’s roster spot for the time being. He has been a serviceable replacement player for most of his career and is performing well in Triple-A Nashville.

With Jace Peterson set to return from the injured list this weekend, Reyes’ stay figures to be short. He’ll give the Brewers a right-handed option off the bench for the next few days.
