Morgan returns to Brewers’ lineup against Braves
Question of the Day
ATLANTA (AP) - Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, and the team put left-handed reliever Zach Braddock on the DL because of a sleep disorder.
Morgan was starting in center field and batting second against the Braves, replacing Carlos Gomez.
Morgan has been out with a bruised right quadriceps. He was hitting .455 in 13 games for the Brewers and played two games with Triple-A Nashville on an injury rehabilitation assignment.
Braddock, 23, is 0-1 with a 2.79 ERA in 12 games. He had a 2.98 ERA in 46 games last season.
“This is a real thing,” Roenicke said. “I think people look at it a little differently, but if you’ve been with Zach and you see him every day when he comes in here, it’s a real thing. … To try to perform every day physically and go out there when you’re not sleeping well, that’s rough.”
The loss of Braddock leaves Milwaukee with only one left-handed reliever, Mitch Stetter.
Roenicke said the team’s seven-man bullpen is sufficient because “our starting pitchers have been good. They’re getting us late enough in games.”
Milwaukee was carrying 13 pitchers before Tuesday’s moves.
