 PHOENIX (AP) -Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. was hit in the nose by a baseball while attempting to steal second base during an intrasquad game Wednesday.
Gwynn was attended to by team trainers on the field for about five minutes after being struck by catcher Vinny Rottino's throw in the fourth inning. Gwynn, son of Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, had minor swelling on the left side of his face, but was able to finish the five-inning game.
``I had trouble catching my breath for a minute,'' Gwynn said. ``It felt like I got a stinger.''
In the scrimmage Gwynn played center field, a position hopes to fill while Mike Cameron serves a 25-game suspension for testing positive a second time for a banned stimulant.
Also Wednesday, the Brewers signed Carlos Villanueva to a contract for 2008 and reassigned right-hander Mark DiFelice to their minor league camp. DiFelice is recovering from knee surgery.
