The Brewers reliever was placed on the seven-day concussion list.

Murphy said Trevor contracted food poisoning on Saturday, which marked the last time he pitched.

After the team returned to Milwaukee with a 3-0 record, Megill fell while in a store and hit his head on the ground, according to the report.

The Brewers promoted right-hander JB Bukauskas from Triple-A to replace Trevor on the roster.
