Brewers' Jonathan Villar: Resumes baseball activity

Villar (back) was able to take some swings during batting practice and do some light running prior to Monday's game against the Pirates, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Villar's involvement in on-field activity suggests he's made some progress with his strained back, but the Brewers aren't yet offering up a timetable for his return. Eric Sogard has settled in as the Brewers' primary second baseman while Villar has been on the mend and continues to flash excellent on-base skills at the top of the order, which could allow Sogard to stick in the lineup on at least a semi-regular basis once Villar is activated.
