Brewers starter Junior Guerra is expected to miss at least six weeks after straining his right calf during Monday’s Opening Day start against the Rockies. Tommy Milone relieved him in that game and will also be taking his spot in the starting rotation, MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy reports. Milone will start on Saturday against the Cubs and will presumably stay in the rotation as long as he’s able to pitch effectively.

On Sunday, Milone gave up a pair of runs on three hits with no walks and two strikeouts in two innings. He also struggled last year with the Twins, putting up a 5.71 ERA with a 49/22 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings.
