MLB Injury News:
The last time Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Marco Estrada
was nearing activation, he was scratched form a minor league rehab start due to
a setback to his ailing hamstring. The Brewers have once again scratched Estrada
due to a setback, as this time the starter experienced tightness in his lower
back, according to Jose M. Romero of MLB.com.
Estrada was scheduled to throw a bullpen session yesterday,
but he was shut down due to back tightness. As a result of the setback, Estrada
will likely stop throwing until the discomfort in his back subsides.
If all had gone well with Estrada’s bullpen session, the right-hander would have been on track to rejoin the Brewers’ rotation sometime during the week following the All-Star break. Instead, there’s currently no
timeframe on his return from injury.
Estrada was one of Milwaukee’s best starters last season, as
the 30-year-old posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.64 and 1.142 with a
strikeout-to-walk ratio of 4.93 over 138 1/3 innings. Prior to his injury,
Estrada wasn’t off to as impressive of a start this season. The right-hander
maintained an ERA and WHIP of 5.32 and 1.356 over 12 appearances.
With Estrada and fellow starters – including Alfredo Figaro –
sidelined with injuries, the Brewers have turned to young arms such as Johnny Hellweg and Donovan Hand to fill out their rotation.

It's been awhile since I stole the Best and Worst gimmick from someone else (since the good times in fact,) but I felt this particular season was in more need of it than any before. After all, what season could be in need of some positivity more than this one? Put it this way, I debated with myself all morning on whether or not it should be called 'the Worst and Worst.'...

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse benefited from a stray pigeon flying in front of Arizona Diamondbacks batter A.J. Pollock. You can see the reaction from Pollock as he is obviously distracted by the feathered intruder. A called strike.

The Diamondbacks will head into the break with a division lead and 50 wins, despite failing to complete a four game sweep of the Brewers Sunday, losing 5-1. The 10-game homestand finished off 6-4, including a sweep of the Rockies and winning three of four against the Brewers, sandwiched around that Dodger sweep.
Imagine what was going through the head of Jean Segura when he stepped to the plate in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's All-Star Game at Citi Field.
Not only was the 23-year-old appearing in his first All-Star Game, but Segura had just witnessed one of the best moments in the history of the annual game.
As the top of the eighth inning ended, the bullpen gate swung open...
