Brewers manager back after night in the hospital

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke didn't get much chance to celebrate his team's 7-4 victory Monday ending a five-game losing streak.
He spent Monday night in the hospital after throwing out his back. He was better Tuesday and at Wrigley Field.

Cubs pitcher Matt Garza threw on the side again Tuesday and will have several most such sessions before going to a minor league rehab. But the timetable for his return is at least another month.
``You're talking about four weeks,'' manager Dale Sveum said.
The better news is that second baseman Darwin Barney, who suffered a deep knee cut on the last day of spring training, will play Saturday, Sunday and Monday in a minor league rehab--the location yet to be determined--to be ready to play in Tuesday's series opener against the Texas Rangers.
Sveum is as anxious for Barney to return for his Gold Glove fielding as his bat.
``You miss that defense and the lack of striking out,'' he said. ``That defense is the best in baseball.''
