Wolf to debut; big day for Capuano

I’m at the home half of the Brewers’ split-squad action today as the Brewers face the Giants at Maryvale Baseball Park. Randy Wolf is set for his unofficial Brewers debut, and fellow lefty Chris Capuano will follow in his first Major League game action in just short of two years. He’s attempting the difficult comeback from a second Tommy John surgery and said this morning that he was feeling some jitters.

“I’m just happy to be able to play,” Capuano said. “Knock on wood, but my arm feels great. It feels normal, and that is a good thing.”
Not that there weren’t doubts along the way. 
“There were times that I thought about alternative game plans,” Capuano said Saturday morning, sitting at his locker in the hours before his long-awaited appearance. “I thought about what my next move would be. Would I go back to school? What did I want to do with my life if my arm, for some reason, wouldn’t bounce back the way I wanted it to?
“I didn’t let myself indulge in those thoughts too long. I wanted to be careful about going down that road, but inevitably you are going to have those thoughts.”
Here’s how the teams will line up:
Andres Torres  CF
Fred Lewis  LF
Nate Schierholtz  RF
Juan Uribe  SS
Eli Whiteside  C
Ryan Rohlinger  3B
Kevin Frandsen  2B
