Brewers’ Shaw out of lineup with bruised hand
MILWAUKEE (AP) Travis Shaw was out of the Milwaukee Brewers’ lineup Sunday, one day after suffering a bruised right hand when hit by a pitch.
Manager Craig Counsell said Shaw’s hand was ”a little sore,” but the injury was not serious. X-rays showed no broken bones in Shaw’s hand, the manager said.
”He feels better than he did (Saturday),” Counsell said. ”Nothing to be worried about. He’s just taking another day.”
Shaw was hit by a pitch from Atlanta’s Jaime Garcia in the first inning Saturday night, and was removed from the game in the fifth inning. The third baseman is batting .256 with five home runs and 18 RBI in 23 games.
