Brewers’ Trevor Megill, brother of Mets’ Tylor Megill, placed on concussion list after fainting amid food poisoning, manager says

Brewers reliever Trevor Megill, the older brother of Mets pitcher Tylor Megill, suffered a concussion in what seemed to be a food-poisoning-related fall, his manager said Wednesday.

Megill, 30, began dealing with the food poisoning on Saturday in New York, where the Brewers faced the Mets in a season-opening three-game series.

After returning to Milwaukee, Megill fainted inside a phone store, manager Pat Murphy said.

“Fell on the ground, hit his head,” Murphy said. “When he came to, he called our people and let them know. We evaluated him the next morning, and it was a concussion.”

On Wednesday, the Brewers placed Megill on the seven-day concussion list, retroactive to Sunday.

The Megill brothers and their parents went out to dinner in Queens on Friday after Opening Day.

The elder Megill pitched two scoreless innings across a pair of appearances Friday and Saturday, helping his Brewers sweep the Mets.

The weekend series marked the first time the Megill brothers had faced each other professionally. Before Saturday’s game, Tylor and Trevor exchanged lineup cards for their respective teams.

Tylor Megill, who started for the Mets on Sunday, suffered a shoulder strain in that outing and was placed on the 15-day injured list. The 28-year-old had won a spot in the Mets’ rotation out of spring training, filling in for injured ace Kodai Senga, who is also dealing with a shoulder strain.

Trevor Megill’s food poisoning saga adds another wrinkle to an eventful opening series, during which the Mets and Brewers engaged in a benches-clearing brouhaha Friday after Jeff McNeil took issue with what he criticized as a “late” slide by Milwaukee’s Rhys Hoskins.

The Mets also lost Monday to the Detroit Tigers, falling to 0-4 in their first worst start to a season since 2005. Their first win of the year will have to wait until at least Thursday, when a doubleheader is scheduled at Citi Field after back-to-back rainouts on Tuesday and Wednesday.
