Gameday: March 18 at D-Backs

Mike Rivera returns to the lineup today after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. The lineup for the Brewers’ first game this spring in Tucson:

Lorenzo Cain                  CF
Chris Duffy                     LF
Casey McGehee             2B
Bill Hall                          3B
Mike Rivera                     C
Brad Nelson                    RF
Mike Lamb                     1B
Alcides Escobar              SS
Yovani Gallardo               RHP

Jorge Julio and Mark DiFelice are also scheduled to pitch. DiFelice has been impressive, including his four-inning start for Italy in the World Baseball Classic, but Julio needs to string together a few good appearances to make the team.

What up with the Brewers not giving local boy Vinny Rottino a shot to make the club this year? I realize that Kendall is entrenched behind the plate, but a guy that can play both corner infield and outfiles spots and catch would be a tremendous utility player. He’s also has a career .295 average in the minors.

Whay arent they even giving him any at-bats this spring. Is he in Macha’s doghouse or something?

What gives?
