Saladino injured his ankle and had to leave Tuesday night’s game while stepping on second base to make a force out.
To replace Saladino on the roster, shortstop Orlando Arcia has been summoned from Triple-A Colorado Springs. Arcia had been sent down by the Brewers on May 25. Normally a player must remain in the minors for 10 days before being recalled, however replacing an injured player supersedes that.
In 15 games with the Brewers, Saladino is hitting .324 with a .622 slugging percentage (two doubles, three home runs).
While stellar in the field, Arcia was struggling this season in Milwaukee, owning a .194/.233/.273 slash line in 44 games. He played in four games with Colorado Springs, going 4 for 15 (.267).
Eric Sogard is playing shortstop for the Brewers in Wednesday’s series finale at Miller Park against the Cardinals.
