The Milwaukee Brewers could get outfielder Garrett Mitchell back this season yet and he could return to game action as soon as Friday, September 15. Since early May he has been recovering from shoulder surgery after he injured his labrum sliding into third base and according to reports from Curt Hogg and Adam McCalvy he is now just awaiting doctors clearance before being able to return.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Garrett Mitchell could return to games as soon as September 15.
According to Curt Hogg Garrett Mitchell could return to the playing field as soon as either Friday September, 15 or the day after. He would report to Triple-A Nashville and he would remain their until the conclusion of the Sounds season. Their last regular season game is scheduled for Sunday, September 24, which is one week earlier than the Brewers last game.
If Garrett Mitchell does gain clearance to play starting as soon as this weekend this would give him about 10 days of at-bats and playing time to see if he would be ready to help the Brewers this year. He got just 16 games in this year prior to his injury, but his combination of contact and speed makes him a threat in multiple facets of the game and Milwaukee would love to have him back if possible.
