Brewers' Segura rejoins team

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Milwaukee Brewers starting shortstop Jean Segura will be back with the team when it returns from the All-Star break, manager Ron Roenicke announced on Thursday.

Segura, who is expected to play in Washington on Friday, returned home to the Dominican Republic and missed the club's final two games before the All-Star break after learning about his nine-month-old son's tragic death last Friday.

Milwaukee placed its starting shortstop on the bereavement list on Saturday.

The 24-year-old earned a spot on the 2013 National League All-Star team last season and finished the year with 12 home runs, 49 RBI, 44 stolen bases and a .294 batting average. Segura was hitting just .232 in 2014, though his 15 steals ranked second on the team.

Also, the Brewers claimed infielder Irving Falu off waivers from San Diego and designated pitcher Kevin Shackelford for assignment on Thursday.

Falu, who started the season with Milwaukee, has gone 3-for-30 (.100) with an RBI this season.

Infielder Jeff Bianchi will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain. He is hitting .171 with six RBI in 29 games this season.
