Brewers media relations director Mike Vassallo just contacted me to tell me that he had spoken to manager Ron Roenicke, who expects to manage the club as usual Tuesday night.

Roenicke had been in a Chicago hospital early this morning after his back locked up on him. But he is back at the team hotel now resting and expects to manage the game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Here is the original report:

The Brewers' massive injury bug apparently has bitten manager Ron Roenicke.

WTMJ-620 (AM)'s Greg Matzek reported Tuesday morning that Roenicke could not be on his weekly radio show because he was in a Chicago hospital after his back locked up on him early this morning.

Matzek reported that Roenicke's wife gave the news to his radio show producer when it came time for the 8:15 a.m. show.
