Brewers Begin Official Spring Training Workouts

by

MARYVALE, AZ (WHBL) - Manager Ron Roenicke says the Milwaukee Brewers’ pitchers and catchers appear to be in good shape as they began their first official workout at Spring Training on Monday.  He said there were only minor physical restrictions for hurlers coming back from off-season surgery.  Roenicke said everyone who was on rehab can at least throw sessions in the bullpen.  Roenicke said, “It’s a nice thing when I come in, and these guys are already ready to throw.”  The skipper said Manny Parra and Zach Braddock have been throwing at minor league camp – and both are up to speed for spring.  Roenicke said both have been throwing very well.  And after having issues with sleep disorders in 2011, Braddock is especially trying hard to make the big club this year.  Roenicke also said he has been in touch with Ryan Braun, who’s waiting to hear whether he’ll get a 50-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.  Braun can still play in exhibition games, and Roenicke expects him to be in camp by Saturday when position players will have their first official workouts.  Meanwhile, the Brewers said on Monday that five players have signed contracts for this year – pitchers Marco Estrada, Tim Dillard, Mark Rogers, and Mike McClendon, and catcher Martin Maldonado.
