Brewers' Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Undergoes nerve release surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nieuwenhuis underwent nerve release surgery following the 2016 season, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Nerve release surgery is an alternative to sports hernia surgery with a faster recovery time. The 29-year-old amassed 392 plate appearances across 125 games last season, though he batted just .209. His solid defense and veteran presence were enough to convince the Brewers to tender him a contract for 2017, however. He appears to be on track for the start of spring training, though the team has not officially provided a timetable for his return.

Brewers' Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Inks split deal with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nieuwenhuis agreed to a one-year split contract with the Brewers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

The 29-year-old batted a lowly .209 last season, but his outstanding 14.3 percent walk rate and solid .176 ISO combined with his good defense all over the outfield made a good case for the Brewers to tender him a contract for another season. The split deal would have him making considerably less money if he gets sent back to the minors if Milwaukee chooses to kick the wheels on their younger options in the outfield, but Nieuwenhuis' versatility could work in his favor for the time being as he works to land a bench role out of spring training.

Brewers' Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Receives pinch-hit at-bat in finale
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nieuwenhuis (abdomen) received a pinch-hit at-bat in Sunday's regular season finale.

A sports hernia limited Nieuwenhuis to just Sunday's at-bat over the season's final 14 games, but his participation in Sunday's contest indicates he may just need more time and rest, as opposed to surgery, to recover from his setback. Nieuwenhuis hit just .209 over 125 games with the Brewers in 2016, but he did finish with a respectable .709 OPS thanks to a .324 OBP and 32 extra-base hits, including a career-high 13 home runs.

Brewers' Kirk Nieuwenhuis: MRI comes back clean Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Nieuwenhuis (abdomen) had an MRI on Monday and the results looked good, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Nieuwenhuis is scheduled to see a doctor again Tuesday to examine his injury, but this is a great sign for the outfielder. He reportedly is dying to get back into action prior to the season's end, so there's a good chance that he'll reenter the fold as soon as he can. That being said, with most minor league teams done with their seasons, it'll be a bit tougher to get game-ready over the next week or so, making a timetable for his return fairly cloudy.

Brewers' Kirk Nieuwenhuis: Leaves with abdominal strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nieuwenhuis was forced to leave Friday's game with an abdominal strain, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

With Keon Broxton also injured earlier in Friday's game, the Brewers may have to scramble to find a center fielder for the rest of the season. It's unclear how long Nieuwenhuis will be out, but abdominal strains can linger, so there's no guarantee he'll be back on the field before season's end.
