Brewers | Elian Herrera proving useful

Milwaukee Brewers INF-OF Elian Herrera was supposed to be a paternity list fill-in for 1B Lyle Overbay, but then OF Logan Schafer (hamstring) hit the 15-day disabled list. Now, OF Carlos Gomez and C Martin Maldonado face potential suspensions, meaning Herrera stands to see time as the team's starting center fielder and emergency catcher. "If suspensions come down, the catching part is going to be big. Center (field) is big, too. We don't have anybody else who can play center. (OF Ryan Braun) is really our backup center fielder if we don't have Gomez or Herrera here," manager Ron Roenicke said.
