The Milwaukee Brewers will be without closer Trevor Hoffman to start the season.  Baseball's all-time saves leader has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique muscle. 

Hoffman hasn't pitched much since straining the muscle back on March 13th.

The Brewers won another Cactus League game on Monday, 9-7 over the Seattle Mariners.  Rickie Weeks continues to perform well, collecting three more hits and extending his hitting streak to 8-straight games and 15 of 16 overall.

Backup infielder Casey McGehee hit his 6th home run of the spring, a 2-run shot in the ninth to win it for the Brewers.  Milwaukee will face the San Diego Padres under the lights tonight.
