UPDATES & NEWS
Randal Grichuk will start in center field and bat seventh Tuesday against the Brewers.
Grichuk, who was recently recalled from Triple-A Memphis, is a righty who will be facing a righty in Brewers starter Kyle Lohse tonight. Using Grichuk in any contest does not appear worth while on paper as Grichuk does not offer much power or speed upside and you have the aforementioned righty vs righty matchup.

Yunel Escobar said his groin is improving and will work out prior to Sunday's game.
The MRI on Escobar came back clean, so that's great news. He's still not 100-percent though and will continue to be held out. Escobar believes that he can avoid the DL and will work out prior to the game to prove it. Obviously though, if he doesn't show the improvement in the workout, the team could hold him out a little while longer. The club can go with Danny Espinosa at third and Dan Uggla at second. They also called up Emanuel Burris who can play all over the infield. Analysis: Howard Bender
