MILWAUKEE Milwaukee's starter for Tuesday's game against Minnesota has finally been answered sort of.
Right-hander Alfredo Figaro will start against the Twins if he isn't needed out of the bullpen in Monday's game. If Wily Peralta gives the Brewers a short start Monday, or the game goes into extra innings, Milwaukee has a backup plan in place for Tuesday.
