LaTroy Hawkins is hurt, after all.
The Brewers will place the veteran reliever on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with weakness in his right shoulder and will recall left-hander Mitch Stetter from Triple-A Nashville. Hawkins, who surrendered a walkoff grand slam to the Dodgers’ Andre Ethier in his last outing on Wednesday, had previously declined the notion that he was hurt.
But his location has been missing for some time and lately his velocity has dropped. On Saturday night after the Brewers announced the roster move, Hawkins owned up.
“Something wasn’t right,” he said.
