Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has been scratched from Saturday night's lineup after splitting the nail on his right index finger during batting practice, the team announced. One of Milwaukee's hottest hitters, the 23-year-old Segura is hitting .359 with one home run and six RBI while leading the National League in stolen bases with seven. With Segura out of the lineup, Alex Gonzalez will play shortstop against the Dodgers after he was originally slated to play first base. Blake Lalli will now start at first base, with center fielder Carlos Gomez jumping up to Segura's No. 2 spot in the batting order, catcher Martin Maldonado bumping up to sixth in the lineup, with Lalli hitting seventh. Third baseman Yuniesky Betancourt will make his first career start in the cleanup spot Saturday, as Jonathan Lucroy gets the night off. The Dodgers also scratched a key member of their original lineup, as first baseman Adrian Gonzalez won't start against the Brewers due to an undisclosed injury. Veteran utility man Jerry Hairston Jr. will start at first base in his place. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter.
