Milwaukee, which entered the season with outfield depth that was the envy of the National League, could find itself in a bit of a tight spot. The Brewers are already down one outfielder, with Christian Yelich landing on the disabled list a day earlier. Brett Phillips was called up to take Yelich's roster spot.

If Cain were to miss any significant time, Domingo Santana could take over for him in center, with Phillips and Hernan Perez as other potential options.
