Milwaukee Brewers Roster Report 2009-04-10


Milwaukee Brewers Roster Report 2009-04-10
RHP Trevor Hoffman was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a right oblique strain. In his absence, RHP Carlos Villanueva probably will handle closing duties. OF Tony Gwynn Jr. was placed on outright waivers and cleared, then was sent to Class AAA Nashville. That means OF Chris Duffy won a bench job. And 3B Mike Lamb was released, with INF Casey McGehee claiming that reserve role.

PLAYER NEWS:

--RHP David Riske, who struggled throughout spring training with a 8.25 ERA in 11 outings, was no better in his season debut Thursday against the Giants. In one inning of relief, Riske surrendered four hits and two runs.

--INF Craig Counsell made his first start of the season, filling in for 3B Bill Hall. Manager Ken Macha put Counsell in the No. 2 hole to take advantage of his left-handed bat against RHP Matt Cain. Counsell went 1-for-2 with a walk.

--RF Corey Hart, who went 1-for-9 in the first two games while batting second, was moved to the No. 7 spot Thursday night in San Francisco. Manager Ken Macha said it was merely a move to put left-handed-hitting INF Craig Counsell in the second spot for his first start of the season.

--RHP Braden Looper was sent back to Milwaukee ahead of the team Thursday evening. The Brewers were expected to arrive back on their charter flight around 2 a.m. for their home opener Friday at 3 p.m., and Looper was sent ahead to get proper rest for his first start with the Brewers.

MEDICAL WATCH:

RHP Trevor Hoffman (right oblique strain) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 27. He was merely playing long-toss as of April 8 and had no timetable for his return to action.

INF Craig Counsell (torn meniscus in right knee) opted not to have arthroscopic surgery and will remain on the active roster.
