After dropping a split-squad doubleheader yesterday, the Brewers are traveling to Mesa today to face the Cubs.
Starting for the Brewers today is Randy Wolf (3.69 ERA, 4.29 FIP in 2011; 0.00 ERA, 3.10 FIP in Spring Training). So far this spring, he has done well. The only two baserunners he has allowed have been through walks; no batter has recorded a hit off of him yet. Opposing for the Cubs today is Randy Wells (4.99 ERA, 5.11 FIP in 2011; 0.00 ERA, 2.19 FIP in Spring Training). He has made one appearance so far this spring, allowing one hit in 2.2 innings. Wells is battling for a spot in the Cubs rotation this season.
Mike Vassalo tweeted that Wolf will be followed in today's game by Jose Veras, Jed Bradley, Santo Manzanillo, and Daniel Meadows.
