Roenicke upbeat about club getting healthy
CHICAGO -- With the activation of Cesar Izturis and the progress of Travis Ishikawa, Jonathan Lucroy and Jose Veras, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is excited about his club getting healthy.

Roenicke said Lucroy, who is recovering from a right hand fracture, should be able to start catching bullpen sessions this weekend.

"I think anytime you have guys coming back -- Lucroy just got the pin taken out yesterday, he's raring to go, wants to start catching bullpen so that's a good sign -- I think things are picking up."

Roenicke said the plan for Ishikawa is still to return Saturday after playing nine innings Friday at Triple-A Nashville, and that Veras should be healthy enough to pitch this weekend.

"The starters have been really good lately," Roenicke said. "Hopefully, that'll continue, keep away from any more injuries, and we should be OK."
