Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press is on the scene at Miller Park in Milwaukee:

That looks like a pretty big drop. We’ll pass along details as they come in.


UPDATE, 11:06 p.m. ET: The Brewers announced that the fan — identified as a male — was “conscious and alert” on the way to Froedtert Hospital, via Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Giants starter Jeff Samardzija will undergo an MRI on his ailing right shoulder, according to NBC Sports Bay Area. The right-hander struggled in a minor league game on Wednesday, surrendering a pair of home runs and hitting a batter. Overall this spring, Samardzija has given up 15 runs (13 earned) on 17 hits (six homers) and seven walks with seven strikeouts in 11 innings.

This may mean Samardzija won’t be ready for the start of the regular season. Derek Holland would likely replace Samardzija in the rotation. Holland had been competing for the No. 5 spot in the Giants’ rotation.

Samardzija led the National League in losses last season with 15, also posting a 4.42 ERA with a 205/32 K/BB ratio in a league-high 207 2/3 innings. Since becoming a starter, Samardzija has been able to avoid injury, making 32 or 33 starts in each of the last five seasons.
