Notes, Quotes · It's taken three guys to replace Hart · Roster Report

--OF Nyjer Morgan got his first start of the season and first as a Brewer when manager Ron Roenicke put him in right field in the home opener against the Braves. Morgan was cheated during pre-game player introductions, however, when the PA announcer forgot him.

--RF Corey Hart still is not ready to begin a minor league rehab assignment. Hart has been out since suffering a left oblique strain early in spring training and the problem has lasted much longer than originally expected. Manager Ron Roenicke said there is no timetable for Hart's return.

--C Jonathan Lucroy, who broke his right pinkie finger before exhibition play began, was sent on minor league rehab assignment to Class A Brevard County. The plan is for Lucroy to move up to Class AA Huntsville to prepare for his return to the Brewers. --RHP Takashi Saito never had allowed two home runs in one outing until Monday. Taking over with a 1-0 lead against Atlanta in the eighth inning, Saito surrendered a leadoff home run to LF Martin Prado and two-out blast to 2B Dan Uggla.

--SS Yuniesky Betancourt snapped his season-opening 0-for-11 drought with a second-inning double for his first hit with the Brewers on Monday. Betancourt followed with a single in his next at-bat in a 2-for-4 day.

46,017 -- Fans on hand for home opener against Atlanta on Monday, the second-largest crowd in Miller Park history.

"You come out of spring training, you don't want to start that way. But I think they still have a good feeling. We'll forget that series and get it going. This is a really good team. We didn't play very well but that's three games. I still think expectations are high for this team." -- Manager Ron Roenicke, referring to the team's opening sweep by the Reds in Cincinnati.
