If the Brewers want to finish the season leading the Cactus League, they will need to make their move soon. As they are 2.5 games behind with 10 games to go (the two exhibition games at Miller Park don’t count in the standings), with seven teams either tied with them or ahead, there’s not much time for them to make up that ground.
While Junior Guerra had been originally announced as the starter for today, manager Craig Counsell decided to switch things up before the game. It’s more of a B-lineup today for the Brewers, with Brent Suter getting the start for the Brewers instead of Junior Guerra. Meanwhile, Guerra will start in the minor-league game for High-A, so the Cubs do not get a look at him before the start of the season. The Cubs aren’t as nice, though. They will be putting out many of their starters despite it being a split-squad day for them.
Here are the full lineups for today:
