It appears yesterday’s lineup really may have been a preview of what’s to come on Opening Day. Today’s lineup is identical with one small change.
After sitting out yesterday due to a left hamstring injury, Jim Edmonds is in the lineup for today’s game. Edmonds, batting fifth, will replace fellow outfielder Jody Gerut as the Brewers’ designated hitter.
It’s great to see Edmonds get an opportunity to hit at least once at Miller Park before the season begins.
Additionally, with catcher Gregg Zaun back in the lineup once again today, it looks like his injury situation should be nothing to worry about.
