• 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.
