Brewers INF Keston Hiura Optioned To AAA Nashville

By Adam Roberts – 6/7/2021

Once again, a lack of production at the plate has resulted in Brewers’ infielder Keston Hiura being sent down to the minors.

How long this demotion will last is uncertain, but starting today Hiura will be working in Triple-A Nashville trying to work through the yips that have plagued him this season. Hiura was held out of Saturday’s win over Arizona and was out of the lineup for three of the past four Brewer contests. Hiura has his .069 with a double and two walks since being called back up from Nashville on May 24th. He also has 16 strikeouts during that period of time. In his start yesterday, he recorded one hit but had three of his 16 strikeouts since the return.

While Hiura is down in Nashville, Daniel Vogelbach will likely serve as the Brewers primary first baseman.

Milwaukee is off today and will be at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati tomorrow to open a series against the Reds.
