Brewers' Eric Thames: Mild groin strain
Thames' injury is a mild left groin strain, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports. "It's been sore for a little bit, but that first at-bat kind of aggravated it," Thames said. "Cold weather, that kind of stuff. Tomorrow, we'll do some [treatment]. The trainers did a great job of getting me heated up, so tomorrow we'll come back and see how it feels."
The injury to Thames is particularly ill-timed, with Ryan Braun (back) and Manny Pina (calf) day-to-day, Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps) playing at less than full health and Christian Yelich (oblique) on the disabled list. The Brewers are optimistic Thames can play this week, but it'll be hard for them to avoid a roster move if at least two of those injured players can't return. They have seven games this upcoming week, five against right-handed starters, which would otherwise bode well for Thames.
