• Doctors pulled more spines out of Rodriguez's cactus-infested left foot Tuesday morning, before Rodriguez got some work in a Minor League game. Many more spines have yet to emerge, but Rodriguez is feeling much less discomfort in recent days, Roenicke said.

• The Brewers had hoped to have Segura back in the lineup Tuesday, but he needed another day to strengthen his sore throwing shoulder. Segura has been getting at-bats in Minor League games and was able to take part in the team's daily throwing program.

• Seven Minor League players will accompany the Brewers on their charter flight to Milwaukee, where the team will play a pair of exhibition games against the Royals at Miller Park. The players are pitcher Dustin Molleken, infielders Irving Falu and Herrera, catcher Lucas May and outfielders Kevin Mattison and Michael Ratterree.
