Minor Leaguer Morris has broken arm

CINCINNATI -- Triple-A Nashville first baseman Hunter Morris is expected to be sidelined six weeks by a fractured right arm, Brewers assistant GM Gord Ash said Friday.

Morris, No. 10 on MLB.com's list of the top Brewers prospects, has not played since June 29. He suffered a non-displaced fracture to the ulna, near his right wrist. Morris is hitting .275 with 10 home runs and 37 RBIs in 78 games for Nashville this season.

In other Minor League injury news:

• Outfielder Mitch Haniger, No. 5 on the Brewers' prospects list, needs about two more weeks to recover from a hyper-extended elbow, Ash said.

• Right-hander Brooks Hall is making progress in a throwing program, and the Brewers hope he will pitch again this season. Hall was sidelined in April by an attached bone fragment that caused irritation in his right elbow, and may have to be removed in the offseason. He is on Milwaukee's 40-man roster.
