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.

Domingo Santana (shoulder) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Wednesday night.

Santana entered Tuesday's game in the eighth inning and then drew a walk and scored a run in the ninth -- pretty strong signals that he was finally going to return Wednesday. He'll hit leadoff versus Marlins left-hander Wei-Yin Chen. The young outfielder has been bothered by a nagging right shoulder injury. This will be his first start since May 3.

Domingo Santana (shoulder) drew a walk and scored a run on Tuesday against the Marlins.

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.
May 11 - 8:48 AM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) drew a bases-loaded walk as a pinch-hitter Monday against the Marlins.

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.
May 8 - 9:50 AM

Domingo Santana doesn't think his shoulder injury is serious.

For now, the Brewers are holding off on an MRI. Santana says he feels fine when he's hitting but it hurts to throw. If this were the American League Santana could simply DH, but that's a luxury Milwaukee doesn't have. Santana was hoping to play on Saturday but the Brewers scratched him after he hurt himself playing catch. He's missed five of the last six games.
May 7 - 5:44 PM

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

He's been out of the lineup for four out of the last five games due to soreness in his right lat. Santana pinch-hit in Thursday's game, so he's presumably available off the bench Friday. Alex Presley is filling in again in right field.
May 6 - 2:25 PM

Domingo Santana (shoulder) struck out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

May 6 - 8:11 AM

Domingo Santana (lat) is out again Thursday.
