Almonte knocked out of BP
Brewers bench player Erick Almonte was struck in the face by a thrown ball during batting practice Tuesday and as of an hour before game time, manager Ron Roenicke was not sure of his availability. Almonte was distracted and then struck, apparently above his right eye, while standing near first base. He left the field with assistant athletic trainer Dan Wright and did not return to batting practice.
