After than more than a month out of action for the Brewers, Estrada is set to return to the mound on Tuesday. It will be the right-hander's first appearance for Milwaukee since he strained his right quadriceps while running out a double on May 23. "I'm very happy," Estrada said. "I really appreciate the opportunity, because this is what I want to do -- I want to be a starter. I love starting." Estrada did his time away from Milwaukee working on his windup to improve his command. He rehabbed with Triple-A Nashville, and felt "pretty good" after throwing 75 pitches in his last outing. "Physically, I'm there," Estrada said. "It should be a normal outing." Reds: Stubbs solid in return
Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs returned to the team in a big way on Monday, going 2-for-3 at the plate and scoring two runs. Stubbs hadn't played since June 5 after straining his left oblique muscle and was activated Monday following a three-game Minor League rehab assignment. "I'm glad to have him back," Baker said. "Hopefully he can come back and not miss a beat and actually be better. He has fresh legs, he said his legs were feeling great. Hopefully he can give us a spark and a jolt, too. He's our No. 1 speed man. That's the one thing that without him in the lineup you're lacking: speed. I love speed. There's no substitute for it." Right-hander Bronson Arroyo (3-5) will take the hill for the Reds on Tuesday, looking to improve on his last outing when he tied a season high with five runs surrendered in just four innings. He is 12-8 with a 3.70 ERA in 25 career games against Milwaukee. Worth noting
Brewers first baseman Corey Hart has played in 28 games at first base this season, including 23 starts, without committing an error.
Great American Ball Park has seen a home run hit in each of the last 63 games, which is the longest active streak in baseball, dating back to July 29, 2011.
