Cesar Izturis was sent back to the team hotel because of a sore throat.
Blake Davis has replaced Justin Turner at second base. Turner took a line drive off his foot during batting practice, but he could enter the game later tonight.
Brad Bergesen threw another live batting practice session, and has one more scheduled for Sunday. If he continues to feel good, he could start Wednesday’s game.
Chris George, slowed by a sore hamstring, also threw live BP.
Nolan Reimold and Felix Pie took batting practice and are scheduled to start tomorrow in Lakeland. Reimold and Michael Aubrey will each get two at-bats as the DH.
Aubrey will get one at-bat tonight.
Mike Gonzalez will pitch tonight.
Kevin Millwood could go three innings tomorrow, but that’s it. Dennis Sarfate and Matt Albers also will pitch, and Brandon Erbe could join them if he isn’t used tonight.
Update: Justin Turner’s right foot is fine, but his left one is day-to-day.
OK, seriously, Turner isn’t in the trainers room, so he’s probably having the foot X-rayed.
Tomorrow’s scheduled pitchers are Kevin Millwood, Dennis Sarfate, Matt Albers, Brandon Erbe, Alberto Castillo and Cla Meredith. Sunday’s pitchers are Jeremy Guthrie, Mark Hendrickson, Kam Mickolio, David Hernandez and Will Ohman.
