Brewers shortstop Jean Segura appeared to be in for an extended absence when he landed on the disabled list May 14 with a fracture in the pinkie on his throwing hand, but manager Craig Counsell shared some very good news on that front before Tuesday night’s game against the Giants …
Counsell said Jean Segura will be activated Friday without a rehab stint. Will return to starting shortstop role.

21-year-old shortstop prospect Luis Sardinas will presumably be sent back to the Triple-A level.
Segura, 25, was hitting .262/.306/.373 with two homers and six steals in 33 games before the injury.
