MILWAUKEE - As the Milwaukee Brewers take on the Texas Rangers Tuesday, one of their starters faces a key start in his development towards a starting rotation spot.
Mark Rogers will take the mound for Milwaukee on Tuesday during a spring training that has been subpar to say the least.
He has a 3.86 ERA so far in spring training, with no strikeouts and six walks.
There is no over-the-air or cable TV broadcast of Tuesday's game.
Newsradio 620 WTMJ's next broadcast of Milwaukee Brewers spring training games comes Friday as the Brewers and Dodgers battle it out. Bob Uecker and Joe Block come on your radio at 2:55 p.m. CT that day on 620WTMJ.
Meanwhile, their international contingent is trickling in after being eliminated from the World Baseball Classic.Canadian players including John Axford, Taylor Green and Jim Henderson are returning to the Brew Crew's Maryvale complex to return to action in blue and gold.
The Journal Sentinel profiles Taylor Green's journey.
The experience for many Brewers in the WBC was not so sweet, as Bleacher Report describes.
Two Brewers starting pitchers will also have to endure a not-so-sweet fate for now. Tyler Thornburg and Johnny Hellweg have been sent down to AAA Nashville.
