Segura returns to Brewers after son's death

Updated:

The Milwaukee Brewers return to the field Friday night for the first of 3 games on the road against the NL East-leading Nationals.

Shortstop Jean Segura will be back with the team. He left the team last weekend after learning of the sudden death of his 9-month-old son in the Dominican Republic. He was placed on the bereavement list, and the team wasn't sure when he would return.

However, Segura flew back to Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Manager Ron Roenicke said Thursday he didn't know if Segura would be a starter against the Nationals on Friday but understands his need to get back to work.

"I think because every individual's different, I don't think you can just come up with a plan. I didn't know if Segura would be back with us this soon, so I know he told me he needed to do it to get his mind off it and get back to doing something that he enjoys, so that's why he's here and that's why he plans to play in Washington," Roenicke said.
