Susac (back) was reinstated from the 10-day DL on Friday. Susac will return after a couple weeks on the shelf, as he's made a pair of rehab appearances with Low-A Wisconsin during the past two days. Upon his return, Susac is set to serve as catching depth with Manny Pina continuing to battle a hip injury and Jett Bandy (ribs) on the disabled list.
Susac (back) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Low-A Wisconsin, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Susac has been sidelined for almost three weeks due to a right back strain, but it's not expected that he'll require a lengthy rehab assignment. He could rejoin the Brewers as soon as Friday when rosters expand, though the team would likely only use him as a emergency option behind the plate in September. Manny Pina (hip) and Stephen Vogt are the Brewers' clear top two catchers.
Susac (back) is on track to be activated from the DL when rosters expand Friday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. He is beginning a rehab assignment at an undisclosed affiliate Tuesday, and will reportedly be ready to assume the No. 3 catcher duties over the season's final month. Jett Bandy (ribs) could return at some point too, which would leave the Brewers with four catchers on the active roster. As long as the Brewers remain in the hunt for the postseason, Manny Pina and Stephen Vogt figure to get almost all of the starts behind the dish.
Susac (back) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday. With fellow catcher Stephan Vogt being activated from the disabled list, the Brewers had Susac take his place to make room on their 25-man roster. One of four catchers on the roster for Milwaukee, Susac has only had six plate appearances in the majors this season, failing to reach base in all six.
Susac (head) went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs and two RBI on Thursday for Triple-A Colorado Springs. Susac landed on the disabled list at the end of May due to a recurrence of cluster headaches, but this performance makes it seem like those issues are a thing of the past. However, this season has been a struggle as a whole, as Thursday's explosion raised his batting average to just .188 on the season, while his strikeout rate sits at a rough 33.8 percent.
