After a fiasco of a Brewer game last night at Comerica park, Alfredo Figaro makes his major league debut against Dave Bush today. I know nothing about his stuff, but his minor league numbers are strong at AA this season and he has a trend of good K:BB rates. He also has a pretty cool name.

Bush has struggled lately and pitched into some bad luck. We'll see if he can right the ship. Tom H notes that Kendall is in the lineup today even though Bush is pitching, but says it might be a misprint. We'll check that out before the game starts. Mike Cameron is also serving his suspension today, so Jody Gerut gets a start in center. Otherwise, the lineup:

2B Craig Counsell
DH Casey McGehee
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Mat Gamel
SS JJ Hardy
CF Jody Gerut
C Jason Kendall

Bullpen rest situation:

  • Chris Narveson is probably unavailable after throwing a lot yesterday
  • Seth McClung pitched 2 1/3 innings on Wednesday (48 pitches)
  • Trevor Hoffman pitched 2/3 of an inning on Wednesday (12 pitches)
  • Mark DiFelice pitched 1 1/3 innings on Wednesday(16 pitches)
  • Mitch Stetter pitched 2/3 of an inning on Wednesday (20 pitches)

Game time is 3:05 central. Go Brewers!
