Brewers activate Willy Adames from concussion list, option Brice Turang

Rookie infielder heads to Triple-A as Adames returns

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers announced on Wednesday afternoon that they have activated shortstop Willy Adames from the concussion list and optioned infielder Brice Turang to Triple-A.

Adames had been sidelined since being struck by a foul line drive in the Brewers’ dugout on May 26. He was hospitalized but avoided a serious injury.

Adames played in a pair of rehab games for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers earlier this week.

In 214 plate appearances this season, the shortstop is hitting .205/.292/.384 for an 84 wRC+.

Turang played a pivotal role in the Brewers’ comeback win over the Orioles on Tuesday night by driving in the tying run, but he has struggled mightily in his rookie season.

Even after a strong showing last night, Turang has five hits in his last 54 plate appearances. He has hit for a .344 OPS in that stretch and has an overall line of .205/.254/.307 (52 wRC+) this season.

With Andruw Monasterio and recently-activated Luis Urias able to back up Adames at shortstop, Turang’s leash was running short. He will look to take some steps forward in a lower-pressure environment in Triple-A.
