Gameday: March 16 vs. Cubs

I’m back after a few days poolside and Mike Cameron is back to work, too, after missing a few days with a ribcage injury. The lineup against the Cubs:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Chris Duffy  LF
J.J. Hardy  SS
Prince Fielder  1B
Corey Hart  RF
Mike Cameron  CF
Bill Hall  3B
Jason Kendall  C
Dave Bush  RHP

Lindsay Gulin, Sam Narron and Chris Narveson are scheduled to pitch behind Bush today.

We’ll also get a look at right-hander Braden Looper, who is scheduled to work in Minor League camp at 1:15 p.m. CT. It will be his first live action since the team’s intrasquad game on Feb. 24. He was scratched from a Feb. 28 start because of his own ribcage injury.

We are also waiting for further word on left fielder Ryan Braun, who re-injured his — you guessed it — ribcage last night in a World Baseball Classic game. Manager Ken Macha indicated that Braun was returning to Phoenix for an examination, but I am still trying to confirm that with the Brewers’ front office.

Brewers PR man Mike Vassallo just passed along the official diagnosis for Braun. He has a strained right intercostal, is day to day and will remain with Team USA in Miami.
