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.
