The Lineup Shuffle & Tidbits
Justin Turner got smoked in the left foot by a ball hit by Garrett Atkins during batting practice and was scratched from the original lineup, to be replaced at second base by Blake Davis. Manager Dave Trembley said if Turner feels OK he can enter Friday’s game at the midway point.
Starter Kevin Millwood could go three innings in Saturday’s game depending on his pitch count. Slight tweak in the next two days pitching with Saturday’s arms after Millwood including Dennis Sarfate, Matt
Albers, Brandon Erbe, Alberto Castillo and Cla Meredith.
Sunday starter Jeremy Guthrie will be followed by Mark Hendrickson, Kam Mickolio, David
Hernandez and Will Ohman.
Also, Brad Bergesen threw a live batting practice today and will throw another one on Sunday. If all goes well, he could get into a game by Wednesday.

Adam Jones CF
Robert Andino SS

Miguel Tejada 3B
