Gameday: March 9 at Giants

The Brewers are back in Scottsdale today to face Barry Zito and the Giants. Here’s the lineup:

Rickie Weeks     2B
Craig Counsell    3B
J.J. Hardy          SS
Prince Fielder     1B
Mike Cameron    CF
Lorenzo Cain      RF
Chris Duffy         LF
Jason Kendall    C
Manny Parra      LHP

Brewers relievers have tossed 14 1/3 scoreless innings entering the game, a streak that Mitch Stetter, Eddie Morlan, Omar Aguilar and Nick Green will look to extend.

In news, the Brewers returned righty reliever Joe Bateman to Minor League camp today. Bateman tossed a clean inning against the Royals on Sunday but wasn’t very effective in his previous three Cactus League innings, allowing five earned runs on four hits and two walks.

UPDATE: The Brewers also passed along word that right-hander Cody Scarpetta would be returned to Minor League camp on Tuesday and would be officially optioned at a later date. Remember that he’s on the 40-man roster a few years early due to special circumstances, and his first big league camp was limited to one appearance in a “B” game.
