Gameday: April 1 vs. D'backs
Scratch that, Bill Hall is out.
Brewers athletic trainer Roger Caplinger recommended that manager Ken Macha use Hall as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday instead of installing him in the starting lineup against the Diamondbacks. Hall had a tooth extracted on Tuesday, and Caplinger worried that an elevated heart rate would increase the likelihood of bleeding, Macha said.
So Casey McGehee starts instead:
Rickie Weeks 2B
Brad Nelson LF
J.J. Hardy SS
Prince Fielder 1B
Corey Hart RF
Mike Cameron CF
Bill Hall 3B Casey McGehee 3B
Jason Kendall C
Dave Bush RHP
Bush is scheduled for seven innings or 105 pitches, with relievers Todd Coffey and Jorge Julio to follow.
In news this morning, the Brewers released infielder Mike Lamb and reassigned left-hander Chris Capuano to Minor League camp to continue his rehab from elbow surgery.
