Various News and Notes
Andrew McCutchen left Monday’s game with a knee sprain after attempting to outrun and dodge a tag in a rundown. After the game, McCutchen did seem too worried about it with reporters, but it would later be revealed that he is expected to undergo an MRI today and then McCutchen tweeted this out:

Consider him day-to-day for now. Adam Haseley is reportedly going to be recalled to take McCutchen’s spot on the roster. Haseley is a former first round pick from the 2017 MLB draft and doesn’t have a great fantasy profile. He projects to be more of an average Major League regular and a compiler in fantasy.

The Brewers activated Travis Shaw from the 10-Day IL. Shaw had struggled before being placed on the IL, hitting .163/.266/.281 with four home runs and no stolen bases. Shaw is coming off of huge back to back seasons in which he hit 31 and 32 homers. He will go back to playing every day at third base as the Brewers demoted top prospect Keston Hiura. Hiura was hitting .281/.333/.531 with five home runs in just 69 plate appearances. The demotion was a bit surprising, but the Brewers don’t have a ton of guys with minor league options and may need to trade someone to get Hiura back up to the Majors. Hiura has proven he can hit, so it is a matter of time before he is back for good.

Hunter Dozier was placed on the 10-Day IL with a chest injury. Dozier injured himself last week and was hoping to avoid the IL, but he was unable to recover quick enough to do so. He is expected to return fairly quickly after a minimum stay. The move is retroactive to May 31st. Cheslor Cuthbert is in line for more time with the Royals in his absence.
