Game Thread #19: Rangers (6-11) @ Brewers (11-6-1)

Will Brandon Woodruff continue to work on his curve ball?

MLB: Spring Training-Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Angels
Woodruff looks to improve his 12.27 ERA and his chances for a spot in the rotation

The Milwaukee Brewers of Maryvale (11-6-1) host the Texas Rangers of Surprise (6-11) in an afternoon contest in Maryvale stadium. The Rangers are going with lefty Cole Hamels, and the Brewers are countering with rotation aspirant Brandon Woodruff. Woodruff looks to improve upon his spring performance (in 3.2 innings Woody has 7 strikeouts, which is good, but when he isn’t striking them out they are scoring at will: 12.27 ERA, WHIP of 2.73), although a stint in AAA Colorado Springs.

In an interesting line-up move, Ji-Man Choi and his .563 OBP and 1.432 OPS are slotted into the nine spot in the order. Enjoy the game! Vicariously, anyways, on FSWisconsin TV.
