Today's lessons include the first big injury of the year, the departure of a long-time fan favorite player, and more.

The Brewers have their first big injury of the spring.

Spring training hasn't even started yet, but we have our first big injury of the spring. Yesterday, the Brewers confirmed that Jonathan Lucroy will miss four to six weeks after injuring his hamstring while training. It's a tough blow, but it could be a lot worse. The timetable for his recovery still puts him in line to be ready for Opening Day. He may be a little rustier than usual at the start of the season, but having this injury happen now is better than the middle of the season.

A long-time Brewers favorite player has moved on to a new team.

With just over a week until pitchers & catchers start reporting to big league camps, one free agent we had been watching has made his choice. Rickie Weeks is officially gone from Milwaukee, and has signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Mariners. As sad as it may be to see Weeks leave, the best thing for Weeks right now may be a change of scenery, and he will get that in Seattle.
