Brewers Place Segura on DL

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Milwaukee Brewers placed shortstop Jean Segura on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right pinky.

The move is retroactive to May 13.

Despite the break, Segura still wanted to play wearing a padded cover over the finger.

"I tell them, 'Give me some days to see how it feels.' ... But I trust the decision that they made, because it's a fracture and if you get something again, it's going to be losing two or more months [as opposed to] maybe 15 days or three weeks," Segura said.  "I don't know. I just feel disappointed. I love this game so much. I don't think anybody cares as much for this game as I do. I do the best I can no matter what, and I'm always ready to play this game and help my team win some ballgames. I just want to be out there and I want to be healthy."

The 25-year-old Segura is hitting .262 with two home runs, 12 RBIs, six stolen bases, and a .306 on-base percentage this season.

The Brewers called up infielder Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Brewers Fire Manager Ron Roenicke, Craig Counsell Takes Over

(MILWAUKEE) -- After a rare win this season, the Milwaukee Brewers relieved manager Ron Roenicke of his duties.

The Brewers defeated the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 to gain their seventh win of the season. In total, they have lost 18.

"This has been a difficult start to the season, something that we certainly didn't anticipate," President and General Manager Doug Melvin said in a statement. "Over roughly the last 100 games, we have not performed at the level that we should. It's all about wins and losses, and after the first month of play this year we didn't see the progress and improvement we had hoped for.

"We appreciate all that Ron has done for our organization, and he has handled his duties with great professionalism and dedication. The reasons for our disappointing start are many, but we determined that it's in the best interests of the club to make this move," he added.

Roenicke managed the team for over four seasons, leading the Brewers to a 342-331 record in that span.

According to Fox Sports, Craig Counsell will take over the managerial duties of the team this season.

Scooter Gennett's Injury Was Caused by Shower Accident

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Scooter Gennett recently suffered a hand injury that could land him on the disabled list. As it turns out, the injury was the result of a shower accident.

After the team's game on Sunday, Gennett sliced one of his knuckles on a metal rack.

"I went to grab some body wash like I would normally grab body wash," Gennett said. "It was definitely a freakish thing. It started bleeding everywhere. I didn't feel any type of pain. I have my strength but something like that reopening and getting worse isn't what we want."

It is uknown just how long Gennett will be out of action for the last-place Brewers.

"He doesn't understand how in the world you can possibly get hurt in the bathroom," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.

Gennett is hoping to return to the field on Wednesday, but no decisions have been made yet.

Brewers Catcher Suffers Broken Toe, Out Indefinitely

iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- Already struggling out of the gate, the injuries are piling up for the Milwaukee Brewers as catcher Jonathan Lucroy will be out indefinitely with a broken toe.

Lucroy suffered the injury during the team's game against the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. He broke his toe after a foul tip hit him in the left toe.

"I've been hit a million times on my feet," Lucroy told "I was just talking to 'Maldy' about it and he said the same thing: That's the first time I've ever seen a catcher break their toe. It had to be me. It's about par for the course right now."

"I can't do anything about it. I have to wait for it to heal up," Lucroy added. "Freak thing. You guys saw it. I don't know what else to say about it other than I have to overcome it, deal with it."

The 28-year-old Lucroy was off to a rough start this season, batting .156 with two RBIs. Meanwhile, the Brewers are off to a 2-11 start, which is the worst mark in Major League Baseball.

Brewers Place Outfielder Carlos Gomez on the DL

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Milwaukee Brewers will have to keep their head above water in the NL Central without one of their best players for at least a couple of weeks.  The team announced they've place outfielder Carlos Gomez on the disabled list.

Gomez will head to the DL with a slight “defect” or “tear” in his hamstring.

"When you talk about a leadoff guy who can do what he can do, and in center field, it's concerning,” Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said via Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “We know offensively we need to get things going and we're losing a guy who has a chance to do a ton for you.

"When you lose Carlos, you lose a piece that's got a chance to really get things going," he said.

For the past couple seasons, Gomez has been a dynamic player for the Brewers. He's made the All-Star game the past two seasons, and in 2014, Gomez hit .284 with 23 home runs ,73 RBIs, 95 runs scored, and 34 stolen bases.

Ryan Braun Exits Game in Loss to Rockies

Robert Binder/MLB Photos via Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) -- Brewers slugger Ryan Braun left the season-opening 10-0 loss Monday to the Colorado Rockies with a strain on his right side.

The injury occurred in the fourth inning when Braun crashed into the right-field wall while catching Justin Morneau's drive.

"I was reaching to catch a fly ball that Justin Morneau hit in the fourth inning and felt it a little bit," Braun said. "With these things, you always know more the next day."

Braun was replaced by Gerardo Parra, but there was no announcement about an injury during the game.

Afterward, Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said Braun strained his lower right side.

Braun won the 2011 National League MVP, but was limited by a thumb injury much of last season.

Brewers Pick Up Roenicke Option

iStockphoto(PHOENIX) -- The Milwaukee Brewers exercised Manager Ron Roenicke's 2016 option on Thursday afternoon.

Roenicke replaced Ken Macha after the 2010 season and has led the Brewers to a 335-313 record. Milwaukee won the NL Central in his first season, then finished third and dropped to fourth in 2013.

Milwaukee started 20-7 last season and led the division for five months, but lost 22 of its last 31 games and finished third at 82-80. The Brewers announced at the end of the season that Roenicke would return for 2015.

"It makes me feel good," Roenicke said. "It's uncomfortable, especially when I concentrate so much on what I'm doing with my job -- I don't want to have to answer questions about the personal side of it."

Roenicke said he has a great working relationship with general manager Doug Melvin.

"I really like where I am. I love the city. I love the management," he said. "He went out on a limb and gave me this opportunity."
