Funeral for Segura's son has taken place, no date set for Brewers return

By Jay Sorgi, Matt Trebby. CREATED Jul 11, 2014 - UPDATED: Jul 15, 2014

Tuesday, 5:00 PM: While at the All-Star Game, Adam McCalvy was able to provide an update on Jean Segura and his family:

As McCalvy notes, there's no date for Segura to return. Manager Ron Roenicke noted on Saturday that the shortstop would be given as much time as he needs.

UPDATE, Saturday 11:55 AM: On Saturday before the Brewers' second game against the St. Louis Cardinals, manager Ron Roenicke informed the media of the tragedy suffered by starting shortstop Jean Segura:

"He was sick," Roenicke said of the situation according to Todd Rosiak of the Journal Sentinel. "(Segura) was on the phone yesterday before the game and they thought he was OK and getting better. I don't really know much more than that. I don't know if it's been a while. Saying that, it may have been a couple days. I don't really know."

Jeff Bianchi is starting at shortstop for the Brewers on Saturday again the Cardinals in Segura's place.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Segura and his family.

Friday, 11:26 PM:

When you lose 10 of 11 games, things aren't right among a baseball team.

When you lose a family member, losing a baseball game seems like nothing in comparison.

After the Milwaukee Brewers' 7-6 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night, manager Ron Roenicke addressed his team for an unusually long time.

He explained why, as tweeted by 620WTMJ's Doug Russell:

“There’s been a death in one of the families of one of our players, so I don’t want to answer questions," Roenicke said, as reported by the Journal Sentinel's Todd Rosiak. "For respect of him right now, we’re not going to let anybody in the clubhouse.

“Sorry, but these things are tough, and I just don’t want to leave any players open to anything."
