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

Santana missed two weeks with a right shoulder strain before being activated from the disabled list on June 3.

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.

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.

Domingo Santana (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Biloxi.

Santana has been out since May 18 with a lingering injury to his right shoulder. The 23-year-old should be back with the Brewers within a week or so, but Jonathan Villar has run away with the leadoff spot during his absence.
May 31 - 11:11 AM

Brewers placed OF Domingo Santana on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 19, with a right shoulder strain.

Santana initially suffered the injury at the beginning of the month and has been in and out of the lineup since. The Brewers finally decided it would be best to just shut him down for a while. Keon Broxton has been recalled to take his roster spot and should see plenty of time in right field.
May 20 - 2:28 PM

Domingo Santana was scratched from the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday versus the Cubs.

His right shoulder is acting up again. Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, and Santana are all now absent for the afternoon series finale against Cubs right-hander Jason Hammel. Santana is considered day-to-day for the time being.
May 19 - 1:35 PM

Domingo Santana went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's win over the Padres.

Santana scored the only run of the game, which came on a bases-loaded double play in the bottom of the first inning. He and no. 2 hitter Jonathan Villar reached base six times, yet the Brewers only scored once. It was a night of wasted opportunity. Santana is now hitting .255/.350/.412 with three home runs. He has yet to steal a single base after swiping four in 52 games a year ago.

He didn't start the game, but Santana entered as part of a double-switch in the bottom of the eighth inning and scored Milwaukee's ninth run of the evening in the top of the ninth. The young outfielder should be close to returning to full-time duty. He's been in and out of the Brewers' starting lineup this month due to right shoulder tightness.

Santana has been out of the lineup in six out of the last seven games due to right shoulder tightness, though he has appeared as a pinch-hitter four times along the way. The Brewers want to make sure he feels good throwing before clearing him to return, but he checked out fine after seeing team physician William Raasch on Monday. He's considered day-to-day.
May 10 - 9:01 AM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) is out again Monday.

Santana still can't seem to get over this shoulder thing. Ryan Presley will start in right field and bat second for the Brewers on Monday night against the Marlins.
May 9 - 2:31 PM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

He's made just one start in the last week due to soreness in his right lat. Hitting isn't an issue for Santana, as he's made a couple pinch-hitting appearances in recent days, but throwing remains a concern. Alex Presley is again in right field and in the leadoff spot.
