Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura was scratched from Saturday night's lineup after splitting the nail on his right index finger during batting practice.

Fielding groundballs during batting practice, Segura got his hand in the glove too quickly, causing the ball to bend the nail back. He was able to pinch hit in the seventh inning of Milwaukee's 6-4 victory over the Dodgers, but the split nail makes it difficult to throw the baseball.

"We'll see how it is tomorrow, whether he can throw tomorrow (afternoon)," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "It split it open pretty good and we weren't able to put him in on defense today. He said he could hit. That finger really doesn't come into play that much swinging the bat.

"The way he throws, he grips that ball really hard. He'll have to come out tomorrow, grab a ball and play catch and see how he is."
