Brewers host Reds with relief in sight

MILWAUKEE -- Help is on the way for the Milwaukee Brewers' beleaguered bullpen, but they will remain short-handed when they continue their series against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.

Right-handers Matt Albers and Joakim Soria have made significant progress as they rehab from hamstring and thigh strains, though neither player is ready to be added to the active roster yet, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday ahead of Milwaukee's 5-2 victory over the Reds at Miller Park.

Albers, out since Aug. 7, is the closest to returning. He performed well during a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend and returned to the team Monday. He reported no more issues with his leg and said he used his time on rehab to work on his sinker and mechanics, two things that were issues as he compiled a 54.22 ERA in four appearances since coming back from a 40-day DL stint for a shoulder injury.
