Brewers place Jonathan Villar on DL, call up top prospect Lewis Brinson

The Brewers placed second baseman Jonathan Villar on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain on Saturday, making room for top prospect Lewis Brinson.

Villar suffered the injury in the eighth inning of the team’s win over the Diamondbacks on Friday when he made a diving stop of Chris Herrmann’s grounder. Villar managed to throw Herrmann out but was unable to stand after the play and needed to be carted off the field.

Although Villar’s X-rays came back negative, the team is hoping some time off will help pull him out of his slump after a strong season in 2016. He was hitting .213/.283/.342 with six home runs this season before landing on the DL.

The center fielder, a consensus top-20 MLB prospect, had been hitting .312/.397/.503 with 25 RBIs, six home runs and seven stolen bases through 45 games this season.
