Gameday: March 29 at Giants

It’s Bullpen Day at Scottsdale Stadium, as both the Brewers and Giants hide their schedule starters in anticipation of the season-opening series in San Francisco. The Giants beat writers just departed for the team’s Minor League complex, where Randy Johnson is starting a Triple-A game at 1 p.m. CT. Milwaukee’s Yovani Gallardo will work a similar game at Maryvale Baseball Park at 3 p.m. CT. The two are scheduled to face each other on April 8 at AT&T Park, Game 2 of a three-game series.

Left fielder Ryan Braun is scheduled to play behind Gallardo in that Minor League game as he continues to test his strained ribcage muscle. I believe that Craig Counsell (right knee) is also scheduled to appear.

Meanwhile, Mark DiFelice is scheduled to work three innings in the “A” game against the Giants. Here’s how they’ll line up:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Tony Gwynn Jr.  LF
J.J. Hardy  SS
Prince Fielder  1B
Corey Hart  RF
Mike Cameron  CF
Bill Hall  3B
Jason Kendall  C
Mark DiFelice  RHP

Todd Coffey, Mitch Stetter, Jorge Julio, Wes Littleton and Lindsay Gulin are also scheduled to work. It’s the Brewers’ fourth game this spring at Scottsdale Stadium, and as any fans who have been here can attest, we’re not complaining.
