Shortstop Cesar Izturis said his strained left hamstring was feeling much better on Sunday, two days after he was hurt running the bases at Chase Field and placed on the DL. Whether he needs more than the minimum 15 days on the DL depends on when he's strong enough to resume running, Izturis said.
Outfielder Norichika Aoki is hitting his way closer to a spot in the Brewers' everyday lineup, but that would probably mean a permanent move for Hart to first base. Roenicke indicated that those discussions are still ongoing.
"It could happen, but we haven't made the decision that this is what we're doing with Corey, that he's our first baseman," Roenicke said.
After going 2-for-5 on Saturday night, Aoki was batting .390 (16-for-41) over his last 15 games. He is the first Japanese position player in Brewers history.
