Things are starting to look a little promising for Luis Urias and his return to the big leagues.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Urias would finally be starting his rehab assignment after spending a lengthy amount of time on the IL with a hamstring strain.
The third baseman has only played in one game so far and that’s due to the fact that he injured his hamstring on Opening Day against the Chicago Cubs. Originally it was supposed to be just a simple 10-day trip, but that quickly turned to a 60-day IL trip.
In 2022, Urias also had a slow start to the season dealing with an injury and position change. However, he would bounce back from both setbacks and bat .239 with an OPS of .739. This was slightly lower compared to his 2021 season where he played in 150 games, batted .249 with an OPS of .789 and had a career high 23 homers.
Nearing a Return
Urias started a rehab assignment with Class AAA Nashville earlier this week and has made appearances in four games. In that stretch, his performance at the plate wasn’t what fans were hoping to see. Going 0-for-13 in three of those games, Urias broke free, snapping that streak and recorded a three-hit game on Sunday. Fellow Brewer Luke Voit also on rehab assignment recorded three hits as well.

Will Luis Urias Help a Struggling Brewers Offense?
While the Brewers may have defeated the San Francisco Giants in Sunday’s contest 7-5, the win didn’t come easy. With the way Urias performed today, things are looking a little promising as he nears his return with the team. The question of where Urias will fit in the lineup is one thing as players such as Brian Anderson and Owen Miller have been huge contributors to the Brewers’ offense; Miller has had a couple of starts at 2B and is arguably the hottest hitter on the team. But that’s a decision to make when the time comes.
The third baseman can be activated as early as May 30th; Hopefully he’s 100% ready to go by then because the Brewers could really use some more offense to get going and win some more games.
