>>Brewers Say Goodbye To Smoak, Get Vogelbach From Blue Jays
(Milwaukee, WI) — When the Milwaukee Brewers play at Cleveland tonight (Friday), their former cleanup hitter won’t be in the lineup. Justin Smoak was designated for assignment Thursday. To take his place, the Brewers have acquired first baseman-designated hitter Daniel Vogelbach from Toronto. Smoak had just one hit in his last 21 at-bats when Milwaukee turned him loose. He was hitting .186 with five homers, but Vogelbach is hitting just .088 and will be joining his third team this year. It’s possible the move will open up more at-bats for infielder Jedd Gyorko who has five home runs and an O-P-S of .955 in limited playing time. The first pitch at Progressive Field will be thrown at 6:10 p-m.
>>Bucks Need A Little More “D,” A Little More Freak
(Lake Buena Vista, FL) — Giannis Antetokounmpo is getting mostly mediocre grades for his 29-point, 14-rebound performance in the Bucks’ loss to Miami Wednesday 115-104. Milwaukee can’t afford another loss in this evening’s 5:30 p-m game three against the Heat. The Bucks need to ramp up the defense which left Miami shooters open too often. They also need Antetokounmpo to take charge. It was his foul at the buzzer that put Jimmy Butler on the free-throw line with no time on the clock. Butler’s two free throws spelled defeat for Milwaukee. Down two-games-to-none, losing tonight (Friday) would be a disaster for Coach Mike Budenholzer’s squad. Listen to tonight’s game at 5 pm on KFIZ.
>>Packers Offensive Lineman Billy Turner Could Miss Season Opener
(Green Bay, WI) — He will be back, but Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Billy Turner could miss the season opener at Minnesota. He tweaked his knee in a practice last weekend. ESPN is reporting the Viking game is “unlikely” for Turner and the Packers are thin on the offensive line. Rick Wagner is dealing with an elbow issue right now – creating a void at right tackle. That’s where standout Vikings defensive end Danielle Hunter lines up. One of Alex Light or Yosh Nijman, both undrafted free agents, may have to step up to keep Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers standing upright.
