Brewers report: Notes, quotes

The Sports Xchange
Inside pitch · Notes, quotes · Roster

--LHP Manny Parra, plagued all spring by mid-back tightness, had X-rays and a bone scan performed March 4 in an attempt to rule out a possible stress fracture in his rib cage. The X-rays were negative but the bone scan was inconclusive, so an MRI was scheduled to get a better look. In the meantime, Parra was not allowed to pitch.

--RHP John Axford, set back at the start of camp by food poisoning, appeared in his first exhibition game March 4 against the Giants. Axford said the slight setback would not stop him from getting ready for the season.

--RHP Pat Egan, a Rule 5 draft pick from Baltimore, had his first spring appearance delayed because of tightness in his right hip and groin. Because teams must keep Rule 5 picks for a full season or offer them back, the Brewers were eager to see Egan pitch.

--RF Corey Hart was expected to miss at least two weeks of action while recovering from a strained right oblique. Hart was restricted from all baseball activity for the first several days before easing back into it.

--INF Luis Cruz was given some action in the outfield during exhibition games to judge his versatility. Considered a shortstop by trade, Cruz played several games in the outfield during winter ball in Mexico.

--C Jonathan Lucroy had the heavy wrap removed from his broken right pinkie finger a week after surgery was performed to insert a pin. A splint was placed on the finger and Lucroy was cleared to do some catching and light throwing but no hitting.

--INF/OF Mat Gamel was expected to only miss a week with a right oblique strain, but the injury did not make progress and he was backed off activity. There was no timetable for his return.

50 -- Game suspension issued to minor league 3B Wayne Dedrick for violating the Minor League Drug Prevention & Treatment Program by testing positive for a drug of abuse.

"I don't want any setbacks. I want to play every day, but the main thing is to be ready for Cincinnati (to start the season)." -- RF Corey Hart, sidelined by an oblique strain.
