3/5/2015 | Last call: Braun chats up umpire about pace of play
Last Call is a spot for all the notes and anecdotes from Brewers camp that didn't find a home elsewhere on the site. Today, Braun and the batter's box:
3/5/2015 | Lohse looks sharp in Brewers' meeting with Angels

3/5/2015 | Eyeing everyday role, Gennett out to solve southpaws
Scooter Gennett didn't face a single left-handed starting pitcher last season, but he's already 1-for-1 against them this spring.

3/3/2015 | Brewers hint at Opening Day plan with spring rotation
After Mike Fiers starts an exhibition against the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Wednesday, Kyle Lohse will start in Tempe, Ariz., against the Angels on Thursday, and Matt Garza will pitch against the Dodgers on Friday. That order makes it appear Lohse is being lined up to start the team's April 6 regular-season opener against the Rockies at Miller Park, but nothing has been made official.

The Brewers don't expect recently re-signed closer Francisco Rodriguez to arrive at Spring Training for at least another week, but now they have a roster spot for him.

3/2/2015 | Parra fine with reserve role in Brewers' outfield
Gerardo Parra is the rare Gold Glove finalist without a spot in a starting lineup. But if his place in the Brewers' pecking order is bothersome, especially considering he's entering a contract year, Parra wouldn't let on while the tape recorders were rolling.
3/1/2015 | Last Call: Regulars likely for spring opener
The Brewers kick off their Spring Training schedule with a game against the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Wednesday, and although it's still unclear who exactly will play in the game, the Brewers are expected to use some of their everyday players.
