Hiura hit his third home run of the exhibition season in Friday's spring game against the Giants.
Hiura has picked up right where he left off last season, going 6-for-16 (.375) with three homers, a double, and five RBI over seven games this spring. He has struck out just four times in 17 plate appearances, which -- albeit over a small sample size -- is a lower rate than the 30.7 percent of the time he was punched out in his first big-league campaign. Cutting the strikeouts will be key for Hiura moving forward, and if he is able to do so he could become an even more dangerous hitter than he already is.
Hiura went 2-for-3 and hit a two-run home run in Friday's spring game against the Dodgers.
Hiura was hitless over his first two appearances this spring, but he notched a couple base hits Friday, including a deep shot to center field. He will start at second base Opening Day and will regularly occupy a prime spot in the Brewers' batting order.
Hiura went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Reds.
Hiura took Tyler Mahle deep in the second inning to record his 19th home run of the season. He now has three home runs in 10 games since coming off the injured list Sept. 14, also recording at least one hit in eight of those contests. The 23-year-old continues to show plenty of promise at the plate, maintaining a .300/.365/.576 line while also chipping in nine steals across 80 games this season.
Hiura (wrist) is in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.
Hiura was removed from Saturday's game after being struck by a pitch in his final at-bat, but he appears no worse for the wear Sunday morning. Hiura will start at second base and hit cleanup for the Brewers on Sunday afternoon.
Hiura went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 10-1 rout of the Pirates but was removed from the game in the eighth inning after being hit by a pitch.
Given the score, the move was likely precautionary, but Hiura's status for Sunday's game should become clearer once the Brewers' trainers have a chance to check him out. The rookie has hit safely in six straight games and is slashing .316/.381/.684 over 21 plate appearances since returning to the lineup from a hamstring strain.
Hiura went 1-for-4 with a home run in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.
Padres starter Dinelson Lamet carved up the Brewers on Wednesday, outside of Hiura's sixth-inning solo shot that brought his team within a run. Hiura has not finished a game since rejoining the lineup a couple days ago, but he still received seven at-bats over the last two games and is 3-of-9 since returning to action Sept. 14 after missing just over two weeks with a hamstring injury. Hiura figures to play regularly the rest of the way, and it should not be much longer before he is ready to play a full nine innings again.
Hiura (hamstring) is starting at second base and batting fifth Tuesday against San Diego.
Hiura saw two pinch-hit appearances over the weekend, and he's since been cleared to return to the starting lineup after missing time with a left hamstring injury. He's slashing .302/.370/.571 with 16 homers, 43 RBI and nine stolen bases over 72 games this season.
Hiura (hamstring) could be available to enter Monday's contest against the Padres as a defensive replacement if his pregame workout goes as planned, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Hiura (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Monday against the Padres.
Hiura was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday but still hasn't been cleared to actually start a game. He's made a pair of appearances off the bench, though so his return to the lineup likely isn't too far away. Cory Spangenberg starts at second base Monday.
Hiura (hamstring) singled in a pinch-hit at-bat in Sunday's victory over the Cardinals.
Hiura has not started a game since injuring his hamstring Aug. 30, but is seemingly on the verge of returning to the lineup after pinch hitting in each of the Brewers' last two games. The Brewers have been cautious with Hiura's recovery, but their goal was to get him back to 100 percent, so he could play every day once he is indeed back in the lineup -- barring any setbacks, of course.
Hiura (hamstring) is taking part in a full pregame workout Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The second baseman will go through fielding drills and take on-field batting practice, clearing another hurdle on his road back from a left hamstring strain. As McCalvy puts it, the Brewers "want to be super duper extra special sure he doesn't come back too early," so a return to the lineup Monday seems questionable, at best.
Hiura (hamstring) won't play in Wednesday's game and won't return to the lineup until Monday at the earliest, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It sounds like he could get some pinch-hit opportunities in this weekend's series in St. Louis but won't be able to take the field until the upcoming homestand. With Christian Yelich (fractured kneecap) done for the season, the Brewers will lean on Hiura to help carry the offense as they look to win the second wild-card spot in the National League.
Hiura (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list but is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Marlins.
Now that rosters have expanded, there's no harm in activating Hiura even if he's still somewhat limited. He is likely available as a pinch hitter off the bench. Cory Spangenberg is starting at second base and hitting eighth.
Hiura (hamstring) will take batting practice Monday, Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports.

It's the rookie's first meaningful on-field activity since he strained his hamstring Aug. 30 and landed on the 10-day injured list. Hiura still has a few more hurdles to clear in the recovery process, but he's on pace to return from the IL before the regular season draws to a close.
Hiura was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a strained left hamstring.
Hiura exited Friday's game against the Cubs with a hamstring injury, and after further evaluation it was determined that the second baseman is dealing with a Grade 2 strain, which will keep him sidelined for at least the next two weeks, per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. This is a tough blow for the playoff-hopeful Brewers, as Hiura has done nothing but produce for the big club, slashing .301/.369/.571 with 16 home runs and nine stolen bases across 70 games. Travis Shaw was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio in a corresponding move and is a candidate to see time at the keystone in Hiura's absence.
Hiura (hamstring) will travel back to Milwaukee for further examination, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Hiura has started all but one game in August, and has occupied a spot in the top four of the batting order in all but two of those games.
Hiura went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.
