Lucroy ready to go after rehab stint · Roster Report · Notes, Quotes

--LHP Manny Parra struggled Tuesday during a rehab start for Class AAA Nashville. He gave up three runs on two hits and two walks in 1 1/3 innings. Parra, on the disabled list due to back tightness, had made a rehab appearance for Class A Wisconsin last week. He is expected to make several more minor league starts before returning to the Brewers.

--RHP Takashi Saito hoped to be recovered from a left hamstring strain in time for the Brewers' series in Pittsburgh, scheduled to begin Tuesday before a rainout. But Saito still felt some discomfort, so the decision was made to place him on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 5.

--RHP Brandon Kintzler, who had been sent to Class AAA Nashville six days earlier, was recalled to take RHP Takashi Saito's place on the roster. Players normally must stay in the minors for 10 days after being demoted, but that rule is circumvented when another player goes on the disabled list.

--1B Prince Fielder played down his NL Player of the Week award for April 4-10. Fielder batted .440 with 11 RBI over that stretch but was more pleased that the Brewers got back to 5-5 after a 0-4 start. "We're winning now, so I'm happy all the way around," he said. "I'm more happy with our overall team than I am about the award."

--RHP Zack Greinke was scheduled to throw live batting practice on the field Tuesday at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, but heavy rains canceled that plan. Instead, Greinke threw simulated action in the indoor batting cage and went 25 pitches. Greinke opened the season on the 15-day disabled list with a cracked rib, and he hopes to return to action before the end of the month.

--RF Corey Hart continues to make progress from a left oblique strain. He was unable to take batting practice on the field Tuesday due to the rainout at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, but he took some swings in the indoor batting cage and said he felt no discomfort.

18-9 -- The Brewers' record when 1B Prince Fielder and LF Ryan Braun hit home runs in the same game. They became teammates two months into the 2007 season.

"I don't think I'll need to take it easy on him. His arm is in shape; his legs are in shape. The last thing was his offense. He's ready to play. His history is he can play a lot of games." -- Manager Ron Roenicke, on the return of C Jonathan Lucroy from a broken finger.
