MILWAUKEE -- From the general manager to the coaching staff, just about everybody in the Milwaukee Brewers organization had their focus on the four different tints on the windows down the first base line at Miller Park. Ever since the stadium opened in 2001, hitters have complained about the shadows caused by the glare off the windows under the roof on the first base side during day games. In an effort to solve the problem, the Brewers have installed four different types of window tint on a small portion of the glass to test to see which works the best. Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and assistant general manager Gord Ash inspected things during batting practice Friday, while manager Ron Roenicke, members of his staff and a few players were out for a look earlier in the day. The most popular choice was a tint which blocks 85 percent of the light and glare coming through the windows. Other options included a frosted look which lets light through but no glare and a tint which lets 40 percent of light and glare into the stadium. Roenicke feels the 85 percent window tint would work, while the other options wouldn't be dark enough to significantly help. "It isnt just the panels," Roenicke said. "Day games, its the edge of the roof where it slides across the mound. But its there, theres nothing you can do about it. This will improve where as it gets later in a day game, and if we ever have those 3 oclock starts, 5 oclock starts, this will make a difference." Davis update: Brewers left fielder Khris Davis took batting practice on the field for the second straight day Friday as he attempts to return from a sore left wrist. Davis has missed Milwaukee's last six games with the injury but is likely to return to the lineup in the coming days. "Hes going to hit full BP today and let me know if he can hit today in the game, and hopefully tomorrow we can get him back out there," Roenicke said. The 25-year-old is hitting .279 with nine home runs and 21 RBI while serving as the team's primary left fielder since Ryan Braun was suspended on July 23. Gorzelanny coming along: Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny played long toss Friday and the Brewers are hopeful he will be able to be available in the bullpen soon. Gorzelanny hasn't pitched since leaving his outing on Sept. 2 with left shoulder tightness. The 31-year-old is 3-6 with a 3.90 ERA in 43 games between the bullpen and starting rotation this season.
