A few Milwaukee Brewers players are starting to get healthy again and are ready to start a Triple-A rehab assignment with the Nashville Sounds. Three players in total will be reporting to Nashville including Willy Adames, who on Sunday June 4 served as the designated hitter for the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.
Willy Adames, Eric Lauer, and Matt Bush of the Milwaukee Brewers will begin a rehab assignment with the Nashville Sounds on Tuesday June 6.
As mentioned above, Willy Adames was the designated hitter on Sunday for the Timber Rattlers. The shortstop collected two hits in that game with both of them going for extra bases. He first hit was a double and his second a home run. At this time it is expected that he will play two games with the Sounds before potentially returning to the Brewers as soon as Thursday June 8.
Eric Lauer, who is dealing with impingement in his non-throwing shoulder, was throwing bullpens on the Brewers last road trip. He now will join Adames in Nashville to get some work in. This injury has altered his pitching mechanics and could be contributing to his struggles this season. There has been no indication as to how long his rehab stint will be.
Last up is reliever Matt Bush. He has been out of game action since the end of April with rotator cuff tendinitis. Similar to Lauer the Brewers have not announced how long he will spend in Nashville, but they likely will want to make sure he is tuned up before returning to the big leagues.
As these three players are arriving the Brewers will be gaining one player back from Nashville. Luis Urias is expected to be activated and return to the team on Tuesday June 6.
