Injuries: Craig Gentry will play vs. Brewers
By Master Tesfatsion
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Outfielder Craig Gentry has been cleared to play Sunday against the Milwaukee Brewers.
The lineup doesn't have Gentry starting, but he is slated to make an appearance in the game. Gentry has missed four games with a mild wrist sprain. He suffered the injury in the third inning against the Cleveland Indians Tuesday.
Gentry hit and threw for the first time Saturday.
UPDATE: Gentry was inserted into the starting lineup Sunday afternoon.
*Catcher Mike Napoli is scheduled to catch Monday for the first time since he felt tightness in his left groin. It will be Napoli's first game at catcher with pitcher Yu Darvish on the mound. Napoli has caught a few of Darvish's bullpen sessions this spring.
*Justin Miller will pitch Sunday. He missed Friday's game with mild back stiffness.
