Milwaukee Brewers prospect Monte Harrison, who began this season with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, suffered a broken ankle when he slipped on wet grass while rounding third base Tuesday. He is expected to miss the rest of the season.
The 19-year-old outfielder struggled with the Timber Rattlers, batting .148 in 46 Midwest League games, but was doing much better since being sent down to the rookie-level Helena Brewers. He batted .299 in 28 Pioneer League games before getting injured.
Choo hits for cycle
Another former Timber Rattler — Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo — hit for the cycle Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies.
Choo doubled in the 2nd inning, homered in the 4th inning, singled in the 5th inning, and tripled in the 9th inning. He drove in three runs and scored three runs.
As a Seattle Mariners prospect in 2002, Choo batted .302 with 6 HR, 48 RBI and 34 SB in 119 games with the Timber Rattlers. He also went 6-for-13 with a walk, two stolen bases, and three RBI in three games with the 2001 Timber Rattlers.
Choo returned to the Midwest League for a three-game rehab stint with the Lake County Captains when he played for the Cleveland Indians in 2011. He went 0-for-8 with 1 RBI.
