Gameday: March 23 at Rockies

Another start, another trip to Tucson for right-hander Yovani Gallardo. Here’s the Brewers’ lineup against the Rockies today:

Tony Gwynn Jr.  CF
Craig Counsell  2B
Bill Hall  3B
Brad Nelson  RF
Mike Rivera  C
Mike Lamb  1B
Chris Duffy  LF
Alcides Escobar  SS
Yovani Gallardo  RHP

David Riske, who told us yesterday that he was “in shock” about his poor start to the year, is scheduled to follow Gallardo, who is ticketed for six innings or 90 pitches. Jorge Julio and Mitch Stetter are also slated to pitch.

The team is off on Tuesday, but when they return on Wednesday it will mark the return of Ryan Braun to Brewers camp. He went 8-for-21 (.381) in the World Baseball Classic but missed time with a strained muscle at the back of his ribcage. The Brewers would like Braun to pile up some at-bats over the final two weeks of camp, but whether he will be able to do so will obviously hinge on his health.
