MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Mark Rogers will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Huntsville as he tries to work his way back from a right shoulder injury.
Placed on the disabled list March 26 with right shoulder instability, Rogers had the Brewers puzzled about his drop in velocity during spring training. Usually hitting the mid-90s with his fastball, Rogers topped out at 89 mph in his final spring training outing.
After his March 12 appearance, Rogers backed off for 12 days before giving it ago March 24 against Colorado. The right-hander allowed two earned runs on two hits with two walks and two strikeouts in three innings and still couldn't overcome velocity and command issues.
Out of minor league options, Rogers had to make the Opening Day roster or the Brewers would have had to risk losing him on waivers in order to get him to the minor leagues.
Rogers, 27, was expected to compete for a spot in Milwaukee's rotation after going 3-2 with a 3.92 ERA in seven starts at the end of last season.

The bullpen was exhausted and had just coughed up another game, a starting pitcher had to pinch hit with the tying run on third base in extra innings. The starting pitchers couldn't go deep in a game and the offense couldn't scratch runs across the plate...
I watched this a few times and am still a bit confused. The long and short of it is that Jean Segura actually stole first base on Friday night. If you don’t believe me check out the insane video and even more insane play-by-play call made by the good folks at Yahoo!.
Thanks to the Big League Stew we have one of the most complex step-by-step rundowns of a rundown:
The beauty about Major League Baseball is there are no actors/actresses or scripts written for any upcoming baseball games.

How can you steal second base and then steal first base? You can’t make these things up!
While the streaking Milwaukee Brewers will try to sweep another home series against division rival Chicago, Wily Peralta is hoping a matchup with the Cubs will help him earn his first win of the season.

Ryan Braun hit a three-run homer, and Jean Segura produced some bizarre baserunning in the Milwaukee Brewers' 5-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night.
Segura somehow wound up safe at first base after attempting to steal third, only to later be thrown out attempting to steal second base again.
It didn't matter, though, because Braun went deep against Jeff Samardjiza...
