Gameday: March 12 vs. Padres (Cameron out)

Mike Cameron has been shut down for at least a few days with a ribcage injury, so Chris Duffy gets the start today in center field. Here’s the lineup:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Craig Counsell  3B
J.J. Hardy  SS
Prince Fielder  1B
Corey Hart  RF
Brad Nelson  LF
Chris Duffy  CF
Jason Kendall  C
Jeff Suppan  RHP

Cameron tweaked a muscle between his ribs, near his left armpit, during relay drills on Wednesday. He said he suffered a similar injury during 2007 Spring Training with the Padres and it sidelined him a month. He’s hoping that he caught this one early enough to limit his downtime.
