MILWAUKEE (AP) - Jean Segura has rejoined the Milwaukee Brewers for the start of a series against the Nationals after returning home following the death of his infant son.
''He will be in Washington,'' Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. ''We'll sit down with him tomorrow and just make sure everything is good before we activate him.''
Segura had gone back to the Dominican Republic after his 9-month-old son, Janniel, died. Roenicke said he had not expected the shortstop to return so soon.
''He told me he felt like he needed to do it to take his mind off of it,'' Roenicke said. ''He'll be doing something he enjoys.''
The Brewers placed infield Jeff Bianchi on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain, which clears a roster space for Segura. With Bianchi injured, Elian Herrera would serve as Segura's backup at short.
