(AP) — Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura is returning home to the Dominican Republic after the death of his 9-month old son.
The team broke the news to Segura after Friday night's game, a 7-6 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. He was placed on the bereavement list Saturday.
Segura's mother attended Friday's game and told several of the wives of Brewers players. And they told Segura.
The Brewers recalled Elian Hernandez from Triple-A Nashville.
