Brewers prospect injured in car accident


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers prospect Santo Manzanillo is recovering after he separated his right shoulder in a car accident in the Dominican Republic.

   The 22-year-old right-hander was traveling to Milwaukee's complex in San Pedro de Macoris at the time of Tuesday morning's accident. The team says he is currently undergoing further tests.

   Manzanillo was added to the Brewers' 40-man roster on Nov. 18. He split time between Class A Brevard County and Double-A Huntsville last season, going 1-1 with 17 saves and a 1.75 ERA.
