The Brewers are tied for first (although both Kansas City and Oakland are undefeated)

MLB: Spring Training-Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Angels
Is Ji-Man Choi this spring’s Jesus Aguilar?
Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Junior Guerra gets his second appearance of the spring for Milwaukee after a nice opening day performance, and will face Indians right hander Josh Tomlin. Craig Counsell tosses a few more regulars into the mix, with Ryan Braun getting his first start in left, while Eric Thames DH’s with Ji-Man Choi back in the lineup at firstbase. Keon Broxton is in right, Hernan Perez at third, and Eric Sogard at short, so Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw, and Orlando Arcia will enjoy a day off. But this is a line-up that we could conceivably see during the regular season, with Thames at first and Choi at AAA, with the pitcher hitting. Unless Choi continues to hit this spring.
