Greinke, Parra, Hawkins placed on DL
The Brewers just announced some roster moves:
– Right-hander Zack Greinke and relievers Manny Parra and LaTroy Hawkins were placed on the 15-day disabled list, Greinke with a fractured left rib, Parra with a facet joint injury in his right back and Hawkins as he works back from last year’s right shoulder surgery.
All three moves were expected and retroactive to March 22, meaning the players will be eligible to be activated beginning April 6. That may be doable for Hawkins and Parra but not Greinke, who will need time to re-gain arm strength.
– Infielder Edwin Maysonet, right-hander Mark DiFelice and catcher Mike Rivera were advised that they would not be part of the 25-man roster but will remain in big-league camp and then report to the minor-league complex on Wednesday.
– Infielder Eric Farris was optioned to Triple-A Nashville after a 2-1, 10-inning win over the Mariners.
