Brinson (hamstring) has been able to hit off a tee and throw from the field during his recovery in Arizona, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
It appears as though Brinson still needs more time recovering from the major hamstring injury, since he's yet to begin taking live cuts at this point. The outfielder was looking at a 4-to-6 week return once he was placed on the disabled list Aug. 15, which would've placed an optimistic return right around the beginning of this week. Moving forward, a more reliable timetable should become present as Brinson starts ramping up his activity.
Brinson (hamstring) has started rehabbing with Rookie-league Arizona this week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Brewers remain hopeful that their top prospect will be able to make a full recovery with a couple weeks left and receive some more time at the big-league level before the end of the season. When Brinson went down with the hamstring strain in mid-August, the club thought it would take between 4-to-6 weeks before he would be able to return, which sets a mid-September activation as slightly optimistic. Once Brinson is able to ramp up his efforts and participate more extensively in drills and live hitting, a more definitive timetable should become present.
Brinson will miss the next 4-to-6 weeks with a bad hamstring strain, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Brewers are not calling it season-ending yet, but it will be a close call. Jonathan Villar is making his first big-league start in center field Tuesday, so he and Keon Broxton will have to hold things down in center field for the foreseeable future, with Brett Phillips potentially joining that mix in September. Brinson suffered the injury running to first base in Monday's game for Triple-A Colorado Springs. He hit just .106 with two home runs in 55 plate appearances in the majors, but hit .331/.400/.562 with 13 home runs and 11 steals in the Pacific Coast League.
Brinson suffered a left leg injury during a game with Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The severity of Brinson's injury remains unknown, but more clarity on that front should come after he visits a doctor later Tuesday. Brinson has struggled during his previous two stints with the Brewers, but provided his injury isn't overly significant, he still looks like the long-term heir to the regular starting role in center field. He may even rejoin the big club as a September callup if health prevails.
Brinson went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday.
Brinson went yard in his first two at-bats of the contest and three consecutive times overall, after he hit a long ball in his final at-bat Saturday. After an unsuccessful stint with the Brewers shortly after the All-Star break, Brinson has picked up where he left off at Colorado Springs. The organization's top prospect has destroyed Pacific Coast League pitching to the tune of a .334/.404/.568 line over 337 plate appearances this season.
