Gameday: March 3 vs. Rockies

Reliever Jorge Julio will celebrate his 30th birthday with a day off, but a bunch of his teammates will be in action against the Rockies at Maryvale Baseball Park.

Rickie Weeks                2B
Chris Duffy                     LF
J.J. Hardy                     SS
Prince Fielder                1B
Corey Hart                     RF
Mike Cameron               CF
Mike Rivera                   C
Casey McGehee            3B
Yovani Gallardo             RHP

Trevor Hoffman, Carlos Villanueva, Mitch Stetter, Omar Aguilar and Chase Wright are also scheduled to pitch.

The Brewers did pass along news this morning that right-hander Braden Looper will miss his next start Thursday because of tightness in an oblique muscle at the back of his ribcage, but did immediately not elaborate on the extent of the injury. Seth McClung will start that day instead as the Brewers play an exhibition against Australia’s entry to the World Baseball Classic.

No further news yet about Tony Gwynn Jr.’s MRI scan on Monday. I am hoping to catch up with assistant GM Gord Ash today for that information.
