Teams are starting to prep for the season!

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals
Juni G Day!
Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like the Los Angeles Dodgers of Tempe (11-7) are valuing the Cactus Cup as much as the Milwaukee Brewers of Maryvale (10-6-1), as they host the Brewers in this afternoon’s tilt. The Dodgers have manipulated their pitchers to get ace Clayton Kershaw on the hill to face the Crew - the second straight day the Brewers are facing an ace. The Brewers were helpless against Carlos Carrasco of the Indians, but did enough damage against the rest of the staff to pull out a 5-4 come-from-behind win.

PLUS - no DH today, as both Brewer starting pitcher Junior Guerra and Kershaw are in the lineups. The season can’t be too far away when the pitchers start hitting.

What are the chances that Keon Broxton strikes out to open the game?
