The Brewers may start three different center fielders in their three-game series against the Padres. Nyjer Morgan started Monday, Norichika Aoki started Tuesday and manager Ron Roenicke said he was leaning toward playing Carlos Gomez on Wednesday, even though the Padres had replaced left-hander Corey Luebke with right-hander Jeff Suppan.
Roenicke said he's still searching for the right formula at that position.
"It's certainly more comfortable if you have one or two of the guys playing well in a platoon system," Roenicke said. "I still think Nyjer's at-bats are better. I like what he's doing. We're trying to figure it out, [and] it's tough when you've got three guys who want to play."
Roenicke said the Brewers still plan to use right fielder Corey Hart as an occasional starter at first base, but Hart has requested some exposure to the position in blowout games before he appears in the starting lineup at that spot. Hart began his professional career as a first baseman but has played only two games there in the Major Leagues, both in 2006.
Braun was named the Brewers' player of the month for April and Zack Greinke won pitcher of the month honors. The team's beat writers and broadcasters vote on the award.
