Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Jesse Winker recently returned to the lineup after a mild stay away from the team while dealing with bronchitis. As a result of multiple days of coughing, he now is dealing with oblique soreness and is considered day-to-day. It is not thought that his oblique was irritated by baseball movements.
Jesse Winker believes his oblique soreness was more related to all the coughing from his case of bronchitis and not baseball movement. Is hoping to be back by Tuesday at the latest.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Jesse Winker is day-to-day with oblique soreness.
When healthy and starting for the Brew Crew, Winker has been productive. He is still searching for his first home run of the season, but he has contributed nine RBI in nine games while slashing .300/.389/.400.
Todd Rosiak, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Brewers beat reporter, indicated that Winker is hoping to be back by Tuesday. The Brewers next series is against Winker’s former team in the Seattle Mariners. It begins Monday April 17 and ends Wednesday April 19. That three game set will conclude a 10 game west coach trip.
Following the Seattle series, Milwaukee will have an off day on Thursday and return to Wisconsin to start a nine game home stand. It would be nice to see Jesse Winker play against his former team, but his health going forward is more important.
