Christian Yelich, Kolten Wong, Avisail Garcia, and Keston Hiura are all getting early action this Cactus League season. We were suppose to get our first look at Brewers’ ace, Brandon Woodruff, today but Craig Counsell delayed his first start due to some minor back stiffness. Instead Milwaukee will send Josh Lindblom to the mound.
The A’s lineup looks like this.
