Illness sidelines Fielder, Braddock

Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder was sent home to begin a program of antibiotics for a sinus infection, the latest annoyance for a club that has sure had its share this spring. 

For those scoring at home, that’s eight of the nine projected Opening Day starters who have missed a Spring Training game with some sort of medical matter. Reliever Zach Braddock is sick, too, and will miss his scheduled outing against the Padres on Tuesday. 
Fielder cut short his batting practice on Monday, complained of feeling ill and was scratched from the starting lineup for a game that was ultimately rained out. With Fielder still out on Tuesday, here’s Milwaukee’s lineup for the day before the off-day:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Carlos Gomez  CF

Ryan Braun  LF
Casey McGehee  3B
Mark Kotsay  RF
Yuniesky Betancourt  SS
George Kottaras  C
Erick Almonte  1B
Marco Estrada  RHP
