Eric Sogard (ankle) begins rehab, expected to return soon

Eric Sogard went through his pre-game workout on Tuesday and will rehab the next two days with the Brewers' Single-A club before returning to the majors for this weekend's series against the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard has been out since July 4 with an ankle injury. His return will force Brewers' manager Craig Consell to make some tough lineup decisions between Sogard and Jonathan Villar at 2B.

Eric Sogard (ankle) receives cortisone shot

Eric Sogard, who has been on the DL since July 5 with an ankle injury, received a cortisone shot on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

As a result, Sogard will not be activated over the weekend as his rehab will push into next week. Jonathan Villar has performed well batting leadoff in Sogard's absence but both players could end up splitting time at 2B when Sogard returns, hurting both player's fantasy value.

Eric Sogard not in starting lineup on Thursday

Eric Sogard is not in the starting lineup on Thursday for the Brewers' series finale against the Reds. Jonathan Villar is getting the start at 2B and batting leadoff.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard has taken over as the primary 2B with a .339 average through 40 games. With Villar back from the DL, Sogard still drew the start on Tuesday and Wednesday. Sogard will need to keep playing well to continue to get the bulk of the playing time at 2B.

Eric Sogard starts over Jonathan Villar on Tuesday

Jonathan Villar was activated from the DL prior to Tuesday's game against the Reds but it was Eric Sogard who started the game at 2B while batting leadoff. Sogard went 1-for-4 with a run and was hit by a pitch during the Brewers' 8-6 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard appears to have taken over as the primary 2B with his strong play including a .350 average and .459 on-base percentage. Sogard could also get some starts at SS to give Orlando Arcia a day off when Villar plays 2B. Villar is worth holding onto in fantasy leagues but Sogard is the preferred start, at least for now.

Eric Sogard collects three more hits on Thursday

Batting leadoff and playing 2B, Eric Sogard went 3-for-4 with pair of doubles and two runs scored in the Brewers' 4-2 win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Sogard continues to thrive for the Brewers and fantasy owners, raising his batting average up to .366 on the season. With a .466 on-base percentage, Sogard may keep the starting 2B job and leadoff spot even after Jonathan Villar (back) is ready to return from the DL.
