 CINCINNATI (AP) -The Milwaukee Brewers activated outfielder Bill Hall off the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, convinced that he had fully recovered from a severe ankle sprain three weeks earlier.
The Brewers optioned Tony Gwynn Jr. to Triple-A Nashville. He was called up on July 6 to fill in while Hall recovered from his injury. Gwynn hit .200 in 10 games, including eight starts in center field, during his second stint with the Brewers this season.
Hall severely sprained his right ankle while leaping to try to catch Ryan Doumit's solo home run in Pittsburgh. Hall hurt the ankle on his awkward landing, and the team initially feared he could be lost for a month.
Hall had a speedy recovery and tested the ankle during a two-game rehab stint with the Brewers' rookie team in Arizona. He went 1-for-6 in the two games and had no problem with the ankle.
``With the extent of the injury, I'm real excited about the (fast) recovery,'' said Hall, who arrived in Cincinnati a few hours before the third game of a series against the Reds.
Hall ran the bases and slid in Arizona, testing the ankle as best he could.
``I wanted to make sure the ankle felt as good as I thought it did,'' he said.
