It was a scary scene in the Brewer’s dugout on Saturday night at Miller Park. It is not unusual for Ryan Braun to take a practice swing in the dugout before heading to the on deck circle. However, in an unfortunate occurrence, this particular swing connected with the face of teammate Jean Seguar. The shortstop was taken to the clubhouse where he was stitched up by the team’s plastic surgeon.
After the game, Manager Ron Roenicke said that Segura does not have a concussion or fracture but he did suffer a significant laceration under his right eye.
As karma would have it, Braun also left the game with a right intercostal strain in the ninth inning. He is listed as day-to-day.
Hopefully Saturday was the last time we see that kind of meaningless swing from Mr. Braun. Jeff Bianchi will play SS until Seguar is able to return.
