Brewers shortstop Jean Segura needed plastic surgery for a deep gash near his right eye after teammate Ryan Braun accidentally struck him in the face with a bat Saturday while taking warmup swings on the top step of the home dugout at Miller Park. But he did not require a disabled list stint and should be back in the starting lineup for Milwaukee for Thursday’s series opener against the Reds.

Segura was used as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday night’s win over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis and he handled shortstop for a half-inning before doubling in the top of the ninth in Wednesday’s loss.

Segura is batting .244/.277/.344 with one home run and five steals in 24 games this season for the 20-8 fist-place Brewers. The 24-year-old hit .294/.329/.423 with 12 homers and 44 steals in 146 games last season.

    I thought he just got stitches from a plastic surgeon, not the actual plastic surgery. Sounded more like he just needed the experience of a plastic surgeon but not the actual rebuilding of his face with “plastic”.

    Nice to see you doin well now Segura, try and tell Braun not to let go of his bat anymore while he takes a swing when you have the time.

    Look forward to seeing Mean Jean out there. The Brewers definitely came out ahead in the Grienke trade.
