Milwaukee Brewers Roster Report 2009-04-20


Milwaukee Brewers Roster Report 2009-04-20
The Brewers' rotation was a major concern in the first week but the starters have settled down, turning in four consecutive quality starts. The offense, expected to be robust, has been a disappointment, however. Through 12 games, the Brewers were batting only .224 and had scored only 49 runs. LF Ryan Braun (.222) and 1B Prince Fielder (.175), the Nos. 3 and 4 hitters in the lineup, have to get going or the Brewers will continue to struggle to score runs. SS J.J. Hardy (.114) and C Jason Kendall (.129) are off to woeful starts as well.

PLAYER NEWS:

--RHP Trevor Hoffman will leave the club Monday to travel to Memphis to pitch an inning Tuesday night for Class AAA Nashville. Hoffman (oblique strain) is expected to make two appearances for Nashville before rejoining the Brewers next weekend.

--RHP Todd Coffey continued his amazing scoreless streak with the Brewers by pitching 2 2/3 innings Sunday to pick up the save in the Brewers' 4-2 victory over the Mets. In 16 appearances since being claimed on waivers from Cincinnati last September, Coffey has pitched 17 scoreless innings. He has entered games three times with the bases loaded and stranded all nine runners.

--2B Rickie Weeks has reached base in nine of the 11 games he has started and is tied for the team lead with nine runs. He has walked only one time, however, resulting in only a .327 on-base percentage.

MEDICAL WATCH:

RHP David Riske (right elbow tightness) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 10.
