Roenicke still not worried about Segura

PHOENIX -- The Brewers may hold shortstop Jean Segura out of Cactus League games through Monday's off-day to allow his sore throwing shoulder time to heal, but he was well enough to take at-bats in a Minor League game Saturday.

"I'm not too concerned about the defensive part," Roenicke said. "I'm more concerned with the offense, him going into the season knowing that his timing is there and he feels good about the offense."

Segura did not play winter ball this year for the first time, so he felt rusty coming into camp. He asked for, and was granted, more playing time, but that led to soreness in his right shoulder that Roenicke does not consider serious.

Segura has not played an "A" game since Tuesday, but the shoulder does not bother him when he swings, so he has been able to continue batting practice during his layoff.

"The defense part, he's had enough games there," Roenicke said "If he sits a week, he should be able to come out and just 'pick it' right away. I don't think that should be an issue."
