Brewers activated OF Domingo Santana from the 15-day disabled list.
Santana is right back in the Brewers starting lineup, batting sixth and playing right field on Friday. The 24-year-old outfielder has an intriguing blend of power and speed, but was hitting just .234/.347/.391 with four homers in 128 big league at-bats this season. He should see regular playing time the rest of the way and could be worth a look in deeper mixed leagues. Aug 19 - 6:42 PM

Domingo Santana (elbow) has moved his rehab assignment from Low-A Wisconsin to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

That's the final step before he returns to the Brewers' active roster. Santana was 4-for-23 (.174) in eight games with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, but his elbow is discomfort-free and the 24-year-old outfielder has the ability to make a positive fantasy impact down the stretch in Milwaukee. He was batting .234/.347/.391 with four home runs through 128 at-bats this season with the Brewers.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that Domingo Santana (elbow) will "probably need 20 to 30 at-bats" on his rehab assignment.

He's at 13 at-bats so far after resuming a rehab assignment a week ago. Santana, who homered for Low-A Wisconsin on Saturday, has had some setbacks after going on the disabled list in mid-June with a sore right elbow. "He’s just in the playing stage," Counsell said. "He’s been feeling fine. He just needs to play. He needs at-bats. He has missed 2 ½ months. He’ll probably need 20 to 30 at-bats. It’s like spring training for him, really."

Domingo Santana (elbow) is slated to resume a rehab assignment later this week.

Santana had a setback with his right elbow/forearm injury a couple weeks ago but has experienced improvement recently. "A lot (of progress)," Santana said. "We were doing a couple of exercises that were really bothering it. We got together and talked and eased down on the exercises to see if it doesn’t get as tight. It’s been a lot better and a lot looser, so we’re going to try it again." There's no timetable for Santana's return, and we'll have to wait and see how the elbow responds to game action. Still, this is obviously welcomed news in what has been an injury-plagued season for the young outfielder.
Aug 7 - 9:29 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Domingo Santana had a "big setback" with his right elbow.

Santana was scratched from a rehab game on Monday after feeling continued soreness in his elbow. He'll be shut down for now, but suddenly his ability contribute at all in the second half is in question. Santana has been sidelined since June 7.

Domingo Santana (elbow) was scratched from a rehab game Monday at Low-A Wisconsin.

Santana is still experiencing tenderness in his right elbow and forearm, which obviously isn't a great sign. He's been on the disabled list since June 10.
Jul 25 - 12:22 PM

Domingo Santana (elbow) began a rehab assignment with Low-A Wisconsin on Saturday.

Santana has been on the shelf since June 10 with right elbow soreness. He's likely to need at least a week or so worth of game action before being activated.
Jul 24 - 8:59 AM

Domingo Santana (elbow) is aiming to begin a minor league rehab assignment in a week or so.

Santana has resumed baseball activities after a lengthy shutdown period. The young outfielder was placed on the disabled list June 10 with right elbow soreness and will continue to be eased back into action. We wouldn't expect to see him before mid-August or so.
Jul 15 - 5:46 PM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday that Domingo Santana (elbow) is "not making much progress."

Counsell added that it's "doubtful" the outfielder will make it back before the All-Star break. "He's not on the field yet for throwing activities," the skipper said. "So, I don't think he'll make it before the All-Star break." Santana has played in only 40 games this season due to a sore shoulder and now a sore elbow. "We're not making much progress, I guess, which is frustrating for Domingo," Counsell said. "You've got to get him pain-free before we head him to the next step. Diagnostically, we feel like we've done everything that needs to be done. It's just in the healing stage. There's nothing that needs to be done. Just rest and therapy. We're trying to get him to progress to the point of plyometric exercises inside, then you start throwing."
Jun 30 - 10:12 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Friday that Domingo Santana (elbow) has seen little improvement and will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break.

Santana has been limited to just 18 games since the beginning of May due to a shoulder and more recently an elbow issue. He's already missed two weeks in his current disabled list stint and it doesn't appear he's close to resuming baseball activities, let alone make a return. In addition to the injuries, Santana sports a pretty disappointing .234/.347/.391 batting line this season.
Jun 24 - 5:53 PM

Brewers placed Domingo Santana on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow soreness.

Santana missed two weeks with a right shoulder strain before being activated from the disabled list on June 3. Now, back to the disabled list after just one healthy week, this time with an elbow issue. Ramon Flores and Alex Presley figure to receive the bulk of the right field at-bats in the 23-year-old's absence.
Jun 10 - 5:22 PM

Domingo Santana is dealing with elbow soreness.

Santana will miss his second straight game Thursday against the Mets. He just came off the disabled list a week ago after missing two weeks with a strained shoulder. Ramon Flores and Alex Presley will handle right field during his absence.
Jun 9 - 6:22 PM

Domingo Santana is not in the Brewers' lineup Thursday against the Mets.

He was also absent from Wednesday's lineup. It's unclear if this has anything to do with the shoulder injury that sent Santana to the disabled list last month. Ramon Flores will fill in at right field and bat eighth against veteran right-hander Bartolo Colon.
Jun 9 - 5:19 PM

Brewers activated OF Domingo Santana from the 15-day disabled list.

Santana missed just over two weeks with a right shoulder strain. He'll return to being the club's regular right fielder.
Jun 3 - 2:58 PM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list on Friday.

Santana will rejoin the Brewers as long as he doesn't suffer a setback in Thursday night's rehab game for Double-A Biloxi. He's gone 1-for-3 with a homer and two walks during his rehab assignment. Alex Presley and Ramon Flores have split time in right field during Santana's two-week absence.
