Riske returns, Hawkins way behind

The Brewers announced in their media notes today that reliever David Riske had been reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and would be in uniform tonight for the series opener at Miller Park against the Cubs. Riske takes the 25-man roster spot vacated over the weekend by Todd Coffey, who was placed on the 15-day DL with a thumb injury, and takes a 40-man roster spot from LaTroy Hawkins, who was shifted to the 60-day DL. The only diagnosis the Brewers have offered for Hawkins is “right shoulder fatigue.”

More on those moves to come. Here’s the 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
Yovani Gallardo  RHP
