2B Jonathan Villar resumed on-field workouts Monday for the first time since landing on the disabled list with a lower back strain on June 10. Manager Craig Counsell said Villar will go through two days of workouts and then head out for a minor league rehab assignment.

Eric Sogard has remained red hot since being brought up to the majors on May 12 and has six-game hitting streak while reaching base in 24 of his 31 games this season. Villar, meanwhile, has been mired in a slump all season.

2B Jonathan Villar was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday after suffering a lower back strain Friday night while making a spectacular defensive play. "He's pretty sore today," manager Craig Counsell said. "We're hoping it goes fast and he's ready to go, but I don't have a time frame. If he shows up Tuesday in St. Louis and is itching to go then it will be at the short end (of the 10-day minimum). "He's young, he's durable. Hopefully, he'll recover quickly." X-rays were negative, Counsell said.

Manager Craig Counsell said Villar dealt with back spasms after the game and needed X-rays.
Wed Jun 706:452B Jonathan Villar not in Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday again...
2B Jonathan Villar was not in the Brewers' starting lineup Tuesday against the Giants as manager Craig Counsell went with hot-hitting Eric Sogard, instead. Villar has struggled from the onset of the season, batting just .207 while striking out 73 times in 56 games. It's a far cry from a year ago when Villar appeared to lock himself into the Brewers' leadoff spot by hitting .285 with 19 home runs, 63 RBI and 62 stolen bases. Counsell dropped Villar from first to sixth in the batting order last week in an effort to get him going, but it hasn't worked out, so Villar will share time with Sogard for the time being.

2B Jonathan Villar singled in four trips Saturday, giving him a hit in four straight games.
