MLB Injury News:
Jean Segura's spectacular season may be ending on a negative note thanks to a persistent hamstring strain. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that the Milwaukee Brewers shortstop felt discomfort in his left hamstring when running on Tuesday, prompting manager Ron Roenicke to say that Segura would not be back on the field until the pain had completely subsided.
"I was talking to the trainers and they want to make sure he's close to 100. Hopefully, we'll get there if not tomorrow then the next day. If he could play the last day or two, I'd be fine with that...I'd like him to go out there and go into the offseason knowing that he's fine. It's not that big a deal. If we can't get him out there, it's not that big a deal."
Segura has been day-to-day with the injury since September 18th. The Brewers finish their season with a four-game set in New York against the Mets. Given that he is back to running, it's still possible that Segura will return to the lineup during that series but the Brewers are locked into fourth place in the NL Central and therefore have no priorities other than simply making sure Segura doesn't suffer a more serious injury.
The 23-year-old shortstop gets a lot of his value from his speed on the basepaths, with Baseball Reference putting him at five runs above average as a baserunner this season. He still leads the National League in stolen bases with 44 but his lead has been cut to two by Eric Young of the Mets, who has stolen three in the past week. Segura had also been fairly durable prior to this injury, appearing in 144 of the Brewers' first 151 games. Jeff Bianchi should continue to play at shortstop with Segura out.

MILWAUKEE -- It's only fitting -- but not in a good way -- that the most frustrating season in Aramis Ramirez's 16-year career is likely going to end in a disheartening and, well, kind of crazy way.

Somehow, Kyle Lohse had to settle down after both benches and bullpens had cleared before he even took the mound Wednesday night. The veteran right-hander was not only able to restore order to the game, but he did so in impressive fashion.

With five games left in the regular season, the Milwaukee Brewers are already starting the arduous process of regrouping from an injury and controversy-plagued season. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that manager Ron Roenicke will have workhorse starting pitcher Wily Peralta skip his final start on Saturday due to recovery from a blister on his pitching hand:
It's unknown if the Milwaukee Brewers will have their leading home run hitter for the opener to the final series of this season.

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez ignited a bench clearing brawl with the Atlanta Braves in the first inning of Wednesday night's game at Turner Field when he took a bit too long to admire his home run before jogging the bases.
Gomez hit the ball deep to left and watched it for a few seconds before one of the Braves (either catcher Brian McCann or first baseman...
Yeah you can't do that Carlos Gomez. You also can't do that Brian McCann.
This one certainly appears to be mostly on Gomez but you have to wonder whether something preceded all of this. Gomez almost vengefully swung for the downs on the pitch before he homered and looked quite agitated when he missed and almost fell. One gets the idea that something motivated Gomez's...
Carlos Gomez’s home run reaction caused a benches clearing confrontation against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night.

Let see, it only took the second batter of the game to rev up this much drama in the first inning as Milwaukee Brewers center fielder, Carlos Gomez hits a rocket dead center for his 23rd home run of the year. He can tell you that because he admired it from a far, yep he stood right there and watched it! When he did decide to run around the bases he had some...
The Brewers' Carlos Gomez and the Braves' Reed Johnson have each been suspended one game after a benches-clearing argument between their teams.
Both were also fined an undisclosed amount Thursday.
In the top of the first inning Wednesday in Atlanta, Gomez homered off Paul Maholm, still furious the Braves starter hit him with a pitch three months earlier.

Only lesson to learn from this fight: Carlos Gomez is a douche. No class whatsoever. Even better is that all 4 sets of anno…
