Update: Villar placed on the DL

Jonathan Villar, second baseman for the Brewers, injured his back while twisting to throw causing an issue on the right lower back. He’ll likely get x-rays maybe even an MRI. Best case scenario is just back spasms and a strained muscle which usually is about two weeks to return to play with anti-inflammatories, rest, and therapy. A worst case scenario is that he herniated a disc requiring rest, therapy, and maybe even injections. Updates will be provided as imaging comes in.
