Go Brewers!

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Brewers top prospect Wily Peralta will get the opportunity to make his second appearance of the spring today. In his first, he pitched two innings and allowed two hits with no strikeouts or walks. After a very successful five start stint towards the end of the 2012 season, Peralta may have the inside track on getting one of the two remaining starting rotation spots come opening day. He will turn 24 in May, and has been on Baseball-America's top-100 prospects list two years running. Despite having the worst season on his minor league career in 2012, when he posted a 4.66 ERA and 1.582 WHIP while having control issues, a good spring training should see him begin the season on the Major League squad.

Meanwhile for the Reds, they will be starting...Jonathan Broxton? Oh Spring Training, what would we do without you? It looks like today will be a full bullpen day for the reds, as I'm assuming Broxton--who pitched more than one inning just twice last year--will not be coming out for a second inning today. Broxton will be assuming the Reds' closing role in 2013, with Aroldis Chapman moving to the starting rotation.

Lineup:

Schafer CF
Segura SS
Weeks 2B
Khris Davis LF
Caleb Gindl RF
Donnie Murphy 3B
Blake Lalli C
Hunter Morris 1B
Kentrail Davis DH

Pitching for the Brewers after Peralta will be Burke Badenhop, Johnny Hellweg, Travis Webb (making his debut), Jesus Sanchez, and Brandon Kintzler.
