The Brewers today placed right-handed reliever Todd Coffey on the disabled list with his bruised right thumb. They won’t make a corresponding roster move until Tuesday, at the start of a week-long homestand against the Cubs and Rangers.
(Here’s a name to keep in mind: David Riske. His rehab stint is up this week, anyway, and the Brewers will have to make a move to restore him to the 40-man roster.)
Coffey’s DL assignment was backdated to May 30, the day after he injured his thumb during a rare at-bat against the Mets. He’s eligible to return on June 14, when the Brewers begin an Interleague Series at Anaheim.
In other pitching news, the Brewers are listing Randy Wolf for Wednesday’s game against the Cubs, meaning he has opted to pitch on regular rest rather than taking the extra day off. My best guess is that Dave Bush will start Thursday’s series finale, but for now the official word is still “TBA.”
Here’s the Brewers’ lineup for Game 3 against St. Louis.
So much for what I wrote yesterday about Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder flipping spots. Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder are indeed flipped in the lineup, though the original lineup had them listed the other way around. Here’s the correct lineup:
Rickie Weeks 2B
Carlos Gomez CF
Prince Fielder 1B
Ryan Braun LF
Casey McGehee 3B
Corey Hart RF
Alcides Escobar SS
George Kottaras C
Manny Parra LHP
