See you in hell, Spring training

USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers close out their exhibition schedule with one more game at Miller Park tonight.

Burke Badenhop will start for Milwaukee, meaning this is going to be a bullpen heavy day as the starters get their rest before Opening Day. Badenhop has pitched really well this spring. He has thrown 7.1 innings with seven strikeouts and no walks. He's allowed just two runs, and has a WHIP of 0.545. He has the best season of his career in 2012 with the Rays, hopefully his spring is a sign he will continue to improve further.

Gavin Floyd appears to be starting for the White Sox. He has been pretty awful at keeping runners from scoring this spring, allowing 14 runs in 20.1 innings. On the other hand, he has struck out 21 batters while walking just three. Floyd's K/9 has been going up pretty much his whole career, which is interesting to see and could lead to him becoming a more valuable starter than he is currently. Floyd has made at least 29 starts each of the last five years, with his best season coming in 2008 when he posted a 3.84 ERA. He has a 4.33 ERA over the last two seasons combined.

Lineup:

Aoki RF
Weeks 2B
Braun LF
Ramirez 3B
Gonzalez 1B
Maldonado C
Gomez CF
Segura SS
Schafer DH
