Looper: Damaged Goods?

As expected, we all knew some kind of significant injury would emerge out of spring ball. Milwaukee took one on the chin today when it was announced that Braden Looper could start the season on the DL. He is apparently suffering from an oblique muscle strain, which is similar to what Braun had experienced late in the 2008 season. Looper was scratched from last Saturdays start versus LA (W, 5-3) and was also scratched from today's start.

Milwaukee finally signed the last player on their 40-man roster. Yovanni Gallardo singed a one-year deal.

Jeff Suppan continues to prove his worth. Yes yes, it's only spring ball. Even still, this doesn't look good at all.

Corey Hart continues to mash, going 3 for 3 yesterday. Famous for his second half colossal collapse after getting voted in to the All Star game, Hart slugged a two-run home run and a double.

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers will host the Peoria Chiefs at Miller Park on April 24th.

Brewers brass continues to eye-up Brad Nelson for the outfield. Pending the results of Gwynn's MRI, Nelson could edge out Chris Duffy and Trot Nixon. The latter two were non-roster invitees.
