Left fielder Ryan Braun returned to the lineup on Tuesday after missing Monday's game to receive treatment for multiple deep blisters on his left hand, a problem that has been dogging Braun for some time.
Left-handed reliever Manny Parra said that the discomfort in his throwing shoulder is a familiar problem, caused by weakness in the joint, which leads to impingement and pain in his rotator cuff. He predicted he would only be sidelined a couple of days.
"I've had it before, so we kind of know what we have to do to deal with it," Parra said.
The Brewers' favorite Trade Deadline deal didn't even involve them. It was the Cubs sending Ryan Dempster, who has long given the Brewers trouble, to the Rangers.
"That was a good move for us, not having to face him," Roenicke said.
