Brewers 2015 Cactus League Schedule Released

Here’s the 2015 Spring Training schedule! Cactus League action, come for the scorpion stings, stay for the cactus spines in your foot!

Below is the official press release with all of the dates/times/opponents.

Here are the quick hit highlights:

  • P&C (and my annual viewing of the movie Major League) is officially set for Friday, February 20th
  • Position players must report by Wednesday, February 25th
  • Open with an exhibition against the UW-Milwaukee Panthers baseball team
  • Gone is the traditional Maryvale opener against the Oakland Athletics. (Related to the Nashville Sounds re-affiliation?)
  • No Miller Park exhibitions in 2015

The Milwaukee Brewers today announced the team’s 2015 Spring Training schedule, which consists of 31 Cactus League games, including 16 at Maryvale Baseball Park.

The Brewers will open the spring schedule on Wednesday, March 4, against the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee baseball team at Maryvale Baseball Park. This will mark the first time the Brewers will face a collegiate team in an exhibition game since 1983 when they played the Arizona State University men’s baseball team. It will also mark the first-ever contest between the Brewers and the Panthers.

The Brewers will host their National League Central rival Chicago Cubs on Saturday, March 14. The spring slate includes one scheduled split squad date on Sunday, March 15 vs. the Oakland Athletics at Maryvale Baseball Park and also against the Texas Rangers at Surprise Stadium. Following an off day on Monday, March 16 – the first of two off days (also off on Monday, March 30) – the Brewers will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a game against the San Diego Padres in Peoria on Tuesday, March 17.

The Brewers will play three night games this spring. They include Friday, March 13 against the Seattle Mariners at Peoria Sports Complex (7:05 p.m. local start time); Tuesday, March 24 against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Talking Stick (6:40 p.m.); and Friday, March 27 with a 7:05 p.m. game against the Cincinnati Reds at Goodyear Ballpark. All other spring games are day games, most of which will begin at 1:05 p.m. Arizona time (the games on Thursday, April 2 and Saturday, April 4 will begin at 12:05 p.m.).

Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to Spring Training on Friday, February 20. All position players have a report date of Wednesday, February 25. The first full workout is scheduled for Thursday, February 26.

Tickets for the Milwaukee Brewers’ home Spring Training games will go on sale at 9 a.m. CT on Monday, December 8 at Brewers.com and by phone at 800-933-7890. Normal business hours are from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. CT. Sales at the Maryvale Baseball Park Box Office will begin on Monday, February 9, 2015. Tickets are available in four seating areas: Field Box ($23), Infield Reserved ($17), Outfield Reserved ($13) and Lawn Seating ($8). In addition, there will also be a limited number of advanced parking passes available for $5.  Information on Spring Training Season Tickets can be obtained by calling the Milwaukee Brewers Ticket Office at 414-902-4000.

FOX Sports Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Brewers announced Tuesday a 150-game television schedule for the 2014 season. FOX Sports Wisconsin will serve as the exclusive local television home for the Milwaukee Brewers. Select Brewers games also will be televised nationally on FOX Sports and FOX Sports 1.

FOX Sports Wisconsin’s regular season coverage begins Monday, March 31, with the Brewers home opener against Atlanta – the first of seven televised games against the Braves.

Other highlights from the 2014 schedule include: eighteen games against division rivals the Chicago Cubs, a pair of home-and-home series with the Minnesota Twins scheduled for June 2-5, and three games against the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox.

Brian Anderson will continue to serve as the primary play-by-play announcer with newcomer Matt Lepay joining analyst Bill Schroeder in the broadcast booth for select telecasts. Craig Coshun also will serve as play-by-play announcer for select telecasts late in the season while continuing his role as the main host for Brewers Live pre- and postgame shows. Brewers Live airs before and after Brewers telecasts with Jeff Grayson, Telly Hughes and Sophia Minnaert reporting as well as analysis from former first base coach Davey Nelson and former Brewer Jerry Augustine.

FOX Sports Wisconsin also will televise a total of fourteen Brewers home spring training games in 2014.

Something To Look Forward To: Unexpected Victories

So much for making this a running series of posts, but life got in the way a lot during August and I just couldn’t find the time for this aspect of things. That being said, I first had this notion for the series back when Jonathan Lucroy walked off against Aroldis Chapman and the Reds back on August 16th at Miller Park.

Away we go.

As I mentioned here back on August 1st, the end of a season like this brings out many naysayers and exposes a multitude of casual fans who can’t wait until the Packers (or whichever NFL team is their favorite) begin to training camp and pre-season. But there are certainly things to continue to watch baseball for in August and September of a “lost” season (at least “lost” as far as the playoffs are concerned). On August 1st I spoke of September callups of which the Brewers tapped top prospect Jimmy Nelson. Nelson is getting his feet wet and experiencing what goes into being a Major League player from the travel schedule to the daily routine and more.

Today though I wanted to talk about what happened on August 16th and what happened again last night:

Unexpected Victories.

On August 16th the Brewers were down to their last turn at the plate when the unexpected happened. Jonathan Lucroy stepped to the plate with a man on, trailing by a run, against a pitcher to which point in his career he was 0-for-5 with five strikeouts against. Lucroy worked a seven-pitch at-bat, fouling off five consecutive fastballs averging 98 MPH. Then, on the seventh pitch of the at-bat, Chapman hung a slider. And, as the saying goes, you hang ‘em, we bang ‘em. Lucroy sent Chapman and the Reds walking off the field in defeat.

Miller Park erupted and the Brewers celebrated an unexpected victory, because if Lucroy doesn’t come through in that situation, there’s hardly a guarantee that Aramis Ramirez (career 0-for-3, 3 K, 1 BB) or Sean Halton (career 0-for-1, 1 K) would have. In fact, Lucroy has faced Chapman once since that day and again struck out.

These games exist and they are an absolute delight to attend and to be paying attention to. After all, cheering our collective heads off is what being a fan is all about.

That brings us specifically to the game almost exactly one month later on September 15th. The Brewers trailed 5-1 going into the 8th inning, having been stymied all day by the pitcher who they are historically terrible against. Look up some of the career numbers of Brewers hitters against Bronson Arroyo and you’ll be floored if you didn’t already realize how poor they are.

Anyway, the Brewers are looking set up for consecutive losses to the Reds, a team which Milwaukee just took a series from on the road. But then the magic of baseball took over and the Brewers pulled out an unexpected victory. Norichika Aoki entered the game as a pinch hitter and walked. Khris Davis pinch-hit for Scooter Gennett and was hit by a pitch. Jean Segura tripled to the right-centerfield gap, scoring both Aoki and Davis. Lucroy followed that up with a sacrifice fly to the warning track in right field, and the game was tied.

In the 9th, Jim Henderson struck out two of the first three batters he faced, walking Shin-Soo Choo in between. He stole second and Ron Roenicke elected to put Joey Votto on base, putting the force in play. Noted Brewers killer Jay Bruce stepped in and hammered a ball that was headed over the wall for a heart-crushing three-run home run. But then Carlos Gomez did what he had done four other times this season and lept at the wall to catch the ball and keep the runs off of the scoreboard.

That gave the offense a chance and a chance is all Sean Halton has ever wanted. Halton swung at a 1-0 change up and the Brewers were walk-off winners again!

That’s the beauty of baseball, fellow fans. I know the term “any given Sunday” exists for good reason in the National Football League, but there are 162 “Sundays” in a Major League Baseball season. Any one of them has a chance to end up in an unexpected victory, snatched from the jaws of defeat.

This season of Sundays has but 13 games left after tonight. That’s 14 more chances to witness something unexpected.

I’ll be watching.

Figaro, Lohse, Hensley – Roster News & Notes for Memorial Day

Catching you up on a few things from the Memorial Day weekend in case you were grilling out and forgot to turn on your radio.

Figaro Gets the Nod

AlfredoFigaro1940s

After Wily Peralta was able to gut out five full innings on Memorial Day, the Brewers’ plans for a starting pitcher on Tuesday evening against the Minnesota Twins were set.

Alfredo Figaro, who worked the past two seasons as a starting pitcher in Japan, was signed to a contract by the Brewers prior to Spring Training. After some negotiations with his Orix Buffaloes team who claimed that they still owned Figaro’s rights, the fireballing right-handed pitcher was brought into camp and eventually won the last job in the bullpen. He acts as the long man most days but has put up pretty good numbers so far this season.

As of 5/27/13: 15 G, 3.46 ERA, 26.0 IP, 30 H, 13 R, 10 ER, 5 HR, 6 BB, 21 K, 1.385 WHIP

He’s only given up runs in seven of his 15 appearances, and only multiple earned runs twice. The negative though is that he’s given up at least one run in each of his last three appearances.

He’ll match up against left-hander Scott Diamond (3-4, 4.96) in the finale of a quick two-game series before the teams head to Minnesota for a pair at Target Field.

Lohse Not Lost For Long After All

KyleLohseOne of those games at Target Field should be started by Kyle Lohse. After having to skip an entire turn in the rotation due to elbow inflammation, the Brewers’ prize off-season acquisition — and ironically best starting pitcher so far in 2013 — threw a bullpen session on Monday and was deemed ready to go for Thursday. Obviously something could happen between now and then, but if nothing changes it’ll be Lohse squaring off against P.J. Walters.

The Brewers will need Lohse to continue his performance on the mound but also must begin to provide him with any semblance of run support. Lohse has gotten under 3.0 runs per game in support which is reflected in his Win-Loss record of 1-5.

Hand Promoted, Hensley Signed to Fill Spot

ClayHensley

After the Brewers promoted RP Donovan Hand to The Show on Sunday, there existed an opening in the bullpen of the Nashville Sounds. To fill the spot, the Brewers signed a veteran free agent relief pitcher in Clay Hensley.

Hensley, 33, has pitched in parts of seven big league seasons for three teams since making his debut on July 20, 2005. He’s been a member of five separate organizations, having spent Spring Training in camp with the Cincinnati Reds along with a stint as a Houston farmhand back in part of 2009.

Hensley maintains a four-pitch arsenal that he’s thrown to varying percentages throughout his career. His primary pitch is a sinker but he also features a curve, change and slider.

Career-wise, Hensley has totaled ERA of 4.00 in 517.0 IP across 271 appearances, 49 of which were starts. He doesn’t platoon barely at all which is very good for a reliever who pitches with length.

Time will tell if his services will be needed in Milwaukee at some point, but he’s certainly a guy worth having in your Triple-A stable.

Brewers 2013 Spring Training Coverage – Combined List

So far once again this Spring, whenever I’ve posted a lineup or scheduled pitchers for a given game someone asks if the game is on TV or radio (or hopefully both).

Adding this post’s URL to your favorites list is probably a quality idea as well.
