Brewers Pitchers and Catchers Take the Field in Arizona

Action picked up at Maryvale Baseball Park this morning as Brewers pitchers and catchers took the field for their first official workout. After a morning meeting led by manager Ron Roenicke, the pitchers and catchers participated in about two and a half hours of drills, workouts and bullpen sessions.

In addition to the complement of pitchers and catchers who were involved in formal workouts, a number of position players took part in informal workouts. Included in that group were Nyjer Morgan, Mat Gamel, Logan Schafer, Taylor Green, Zelous Wheeler and Eric Farris.

Below are some photos from the action on the fields at the Brewers Maryvale complex.

This routine is scheduled for the rest of the week until Saturday when the position players take part in their first official full workout. I will continue to post photos and updates from Maryvale throughout Spring Training, so stay tuned!



Hold on. Craig Counsell on the field with a glove, participating in drills? What about that new front office gig assisting Melvin?

Part of Craig’s duties involve working on the field with players and assisting coaches–especially during Spring Training when there are a lot of different activities going on at different fields.

Thanks! Excellent news. I was thrilled to hear he was staying with the club, and I’m glad to know he’s having that kind of direct interaction with the team. He’s a fantastic asset and a winner!

Heading out to Maryvale the end of March, and will be at a game wearing my Craig Counsel game worn jersey. Hope he is there.
