Brewers send Renfroe to IL with hamstring strain

Milwaukee Brewers could be without Hunter Renfroe for two weeks due to strained hamstring 10:39 PM ET Associated Press SAN DIEGO -- The Milwaukee Brewers have placed outfielder Hunter Renfroe on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring and selected infielder-outfielder Mark Mathias from Triple-A Nashville. Renfroe was injured during Monday night's 3-2, 10-inning loss to the San Diego Padres . He was hitting .266 with nine home runs and 16 RBIs for the National League Central-leading Brewers. Manager Craig Counsell said before Tuesday night's game that an MRI showed a low-grade hamstring strain and that Renfroe could miss two weeks. "We're going to miss Hunter," Counsell said. "He's been a regular for us, he's been a good presence for us, he's been a really good offensive player for us. We're going to miss that, for sure. Again, it challenges your depth. "He's played incredible defense this year, I think," Counsell added. "His arm had to be one of the most valuable arms in all baseball in the outfield."
