After placing Ryan Braun on the disabled list earlier Saturday, the Brewers knew they would be down one starting outfielder for tonight's game. Turns out, they decided to sit a second, as well.

Both Logan Schafer -- newly activated from his own DL stint -- and Caleb Gindl are in the starting lineup Saturday night, replacing Khris Davis and Braun, respectively. Davis has been more or less forced to remain in the lineup for a while due to Braun's injury and a lack of suitable backup outfielders. He's still been mired in a slump, as well, so it's good for him to get a reprieve.

Meanwhile, the rest of the lineup stays fairly normal. Mark Reynolds gets another start against the right-handed Johnny Cueto while Jean Segura is bumped up to the seventh spot in the lineup as Schafer bats eighth. It'll be a tough matchup today as Cueto has been lights out this season, with a 1.15 ERA and 0.76 WHIP over six starts. The guy is allowing only 4.5 hits per nine innings. Jinkies.

Fortunately, the Brewers have their own starting pitcher who is off to a hot start. Yovani Gallardo enters tonight with a 1.91 ERA despite much lower strikeout numbers than is typical for him. But, hey, if that's what keeps the runs off the board so be it. Over six outings, Gallardo has not yet failed to record a quality start.
