The Milwaukee Brewers have brought infielder Luis Urias back to the United States to have his ailing left wrist examined, MLB.com reported Saturday.
Urias played this winter for Obregon in the Mexican Pacific Winter League, batting .288. But when his wrist started hurting, he stopped playing.
"We should have more answers by the middle of next week," Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns said, per MLB.com.
The Brewers acquired Urias and starting pitcher Eric Lauer from the San Diego Padres in November in exchange for starting pitcher Zach Davies and outfielder Trent Grisham.
Manager Craig Counsell said at the Winter Meetings that Urias would have a shot to beat out returning shortstop Orlando Arcia.
In 71 games with the Padres in 2019, the 22-year-old Urias hit .223 with four home runs and 24 RBIs. He struck out 56 times in 215 at-bats.
Brewers position players begin spring workouts on Feb. 18 in Phoenix.
