Per Bernie M. of the Post-Dispatch and Matthew Leach here on MLB.com, Chris Duncan has hurt his hamstring.
As far as I know, he’s just sitting out tonight as a precaution, but if the injury is more serious upon reevaluation, this could mean one of two things: the call-up of Mather or the call-up of Rasmus. Likely Mather, but hey, anything can happen, right?
Anyway, Ludwick is in RF today with Schumaker in LF and Glaus is batting fourth since he pretty much OWNS Aaron Cook (two home runs in 9 at-bats, 5 total hits).
I like this lineup better anyway. Duncan had a hit last night, but hey, this is similar to the lineup that scored 5 runs on Monday. Kennedy is starting at second and Wellemeyer is pitching (those are two main differences, anyway).
I’ll try to blog during the game tonight, not sure if I will or not yet, though.
