Herrera is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Giants.

This marks Herrera's third absence from the lineup in the past five games, with Luis Sardinas and Hector Gomez again holding down the middle infield. Herrera and Gomez will likely continue to split at-bats, but Scooter Gennett figures to eventually rejoin the big-league squad.

Herrera is out of the lineup Friday.

Hector Gomez and Herrera are in what amounts to a 50-50 split at second base with Scooter Gennett at Triple-A Colorado Springs. Herrera is hitting just .219 and is a bottom tier middle infield option in most formats.

Herrera and Hector Gomez figure to share the second base duties for the Brewers moving forward after starting second baseman Scooter Gennett was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

Herrera and Gomez shared the second base duties when Gennett was on the disabled list earlier in the season, and they will likely do so again with Gennett now in the minors. Herrera's ability to hit from both sides of the plate gives him a leg up over Gomez, but neither player is hitting particularly well, and both can play other positions, so expect the two to rotate the starts at the keystone rather than form a hard platoon.

Herrera will receive another start at third base Wednesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Herrera homered in his third straight game Tuesday, and regular third baseman Aramis Ramirez is still dealing with a sore back, so manager Craig Counsell will stick with the hot hand and give Herrera his sixth straight start at third base Wednesday night. Herrera is hitting just .228 this year, but he owns a .782 OPS on the season thanks to four home runs and three doubles.

Herrera went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer that put the Brewers on top for good in the win over the White Sox on Monday night.

Aramis Ramirez continues to be sidelined by a back injury, which was enabled Herrera to take over as the team's interim third baseman. Monday's start was the fourth consecutive game that Herrera has been in the lineup for Milwaukee, and he's now delivered a home run in back-to-back games after going deep on Mother's Day against the Cubs.

Herrera is not in the lineup Wednesday for the second straight day.

Herrera had been seeing regular action at second base, but he will be held out in favor of Hector Gomez again Wednesday. The two figure to continue sharing the second base duties until Scooter Gennett (hand) returns to action, likely next week.

Herrera hit a grand slam in his first appearance of the season Tuesday in a loss to the Reds.

Herrera took over starting duties at second base with Scooter Gennett (hand) out. Last season he appeared in 69 games for the Brewers and drove in just five runs. Expect him to continue to compete for starting time with Hector Gomez until Gennett returns.

Herrera will play second base and hit second in Tuesday's game against the Reds.

It's not exactly clear how Herrera and Hector Gomez will split the second base duties in Scooter Gennett's absence, but Herrera will jump right into the lineup after being called up Tuesday morning. Herrera owns just one home run and four stolen bases over 141 career MLB games, but he did hit .288 against right-handers last season, and posted a 1.144 OPS through 11 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs this year.

Herrera was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.

Herrera was called up to take the roster spot of Scooter Gennett, who was placed on the disabled list with a hand injury. Herrera hit a sizzling .422 (19-for-45) through 11 games with Colorado Springs, but he will likely fill a utility role with the big club and does not figure to see regular at-bats.
