Tellez (kneecap) participated in infield drills ahead of Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Tellez has been on the injured list since Sept. 12 due to a strained right patella, but he's now participating in baseball activities. A better timetable for his return should be revealed once he ramps up his activity level, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the major-league roster late in the regular season or sometime during the postseason.
Tellez (kneecap) is expected to spend a minimum of two weeks on the injured list, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Tellez was diagnosed with a strained right patella after he left Saturday's game against Cleveland, and manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that the first baseman will be reassessed after two weeks. With three weeks remaining in the regular season, the 26-year-old faces a tight window if he hopes to return to game action prior to postseason play.
Tellez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right patella Sunday.
Tellez left Saturday's game in Cleveland with what was originally called right knee discomfort. As it turns out, the injury is serious enough to shut him down for at least 10 days, though whether or not he'll miss more time beyond that point is not yet clear. Luke Maile was called up to take his place on the roster.
Tellez will undergo an MRI on his right knee Sunday to determine the severity of his injury, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Tellez extended the Brewers' lead to four runs with a 454-foot blast to center field in the third inning. It was his first home run in over two weeks as he's now up to 11 on the year.

The lefty-hitting Tellez will retreat to the bench for the series finale with a southpaw (Dillon Peters) on the hill for Pittsburgh. Eduardo Escobar checks in at first base for Tellez.
Tellez came off the bench and cracked a pinch-hit, two-run home run in Saturday's 6-0 win over Pittsburgh.
Tellez hit for Milwaukee reliever Brad Boxberger in the sixth inning and sent a Chris Stratton offering over the right-field wall to give the Brewers a 5-0 lead. It was the 10th homer of the year for Tellez, six of which have come with Milwaukee. The 26-year-old is hitting .333/.407/.613 in 86 plate appearances since being acquired from Toronto. He's had hot streaks like this in the past for the Blue Jays; we'll have to wait and see if Tellez can remain productive over a longer duration this time.

Eduardo Escobar will shift to first base while Luis Urias starts at the hot corner.
Tellez (knee) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Cubs.
Tellez was removed from Wednesday's game due to right knee discomfort, and the issue will force him out of the lineup for at least one additional matchup. Eduardo Escobar will take his place at first base while Luis Urias starts at the hot corner.
Tellez was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cubs with right knee discomfort, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Tellez hit a single during the first inning and came around to score on Lorenzo Cain's double, and it appears that's when he suffered the injury. The first baseman initially remained in the contest before being replaced by a pinch hitter. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but there's a chance the Brewers were simply being cautious after putting up a seven spot during the opening frame.
Tellez is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cubs.
The Brewers are going with a right-handed-heavy lineup to counter Cubs lefty Justin Steele in the series opener, so the lefty-hitting Tellez will sit out the front end of the twin bill along with Omar Narvaez and Christian Yelich. Eduardo Escobar will man first base in the early game, but expect Tellez to return to the lineup for the nightcap with right-hander Alec Mills on the bump for Chicago.

Tellez is up to nine homers, 24 RBI, 22 runs scored and a .748 OPS through 215 plate appearances between Milwaukee and Toronto this year. He's consistently been in the lineup versus right-handed pitching, but he's likely to remain limited to a strong-side platoon role with Eduardo Escobar shifting over to first base against southpaws.
