Jean Segura has rejoined the Brewers.

Segura flew home to the Dominican Republic last Saturday after his nine-month-old son died suddenly from an illness. He will be with the Brewers on their three-game trip to Washington, D.C. this weekend but manager Ron Roenicke said the shortstop might not be mentally ready yet to play every day. Jeff Bianchi will continue to see part-time action at short.

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said Wednesday that he's attempted to contact Jean Segura in order to find out when he plans to rejoin the team.

Segura is in his native Dominican Republic following the tragic passing of his nine-month old son. "I've made phone calls today to try to make contact with him," said Melvin. "I haven't been able to make contact at this time. I'm hoping to find out today. We've left messages but we haven't heard back. We just don't know right now." The Brewers are hoping to find out when Segura plans to return, but they're not sure about whether he'll be ready to play when he does get back. "There are a lot of unknowns here," said Melvin. "Whatever Jean decides, we will support him. And we know his teammates will be there for him, too."
