Crosby tests thigh, targets Tuesday return


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Bobby Crosby, who is recovering from a strained left thigh, tested his leg by running through some pregame drills on Thursday and the Brewers were happy with the results.

"[He's] coming along pretty good," manage Ron Roenicke said. "Ran yesterday and they were happy with it, didn't feel [pain]. Didn't go 100 percent, but that was good.

The 2004 American League Rookie of the Year has not played in a Major League game since 2010, but is competing for the final spot on the Brewers bench and expects to get back on the field early next week.

The current target date for Crosby's return is Tuesday according to Roenicke.

Milwaukee has an off day Monday and then plays Team Canada on Tuesday.
