Brewers 1B Daniel Vogelbach Heads To IL; Hiura Called Up Again

By Adam Roberts – 6/23/2021

While it made for entertaining television when the Arizona Diamondbacks had an “Error 404” moment on a single that scored the Brewers’ Daniel Vogelbach, the source was unfortunate news for Milwaukee.

Rounding third and headed for home, Vogelbach pulled up with a strained left hamstring. But thanks to some very questionable field work by Arizona, he was able to hobble home before exiting the game. Today the team is placing Vogelbach on the 10-day IL.

To fill the need, the team will once again be calling upon Keston Hiura. The infielder has had noted struggles this year and will once again get an opportunity to show his growth during stints at Triple-A Nashville.

Pitcher Brett Anderson was also placed on 10-day injured list with a knee injury. The left-hander suffered the injury in Monday’s game while batting in the second inning. Tyrone Taylor was reinstated from the injured list.

Milwaukee and Arizona wrap up their series this afternoon in Phoenix.
