MARYVALE, Ariz. - The Milwaukee Brewers get back to action Monday in spring training - all except their biggest superstar.  Another big-time slugger

The Brewers' take to the field against the Cleveland Indians at 3:05 p.m. CT in Goodyear, Ariz. on Monday.

Brewers slugger Ryan Braun told the Journal Sentinel, however, he would be taking a short break following the World Baseball Classic.

Newsradio 620 WTMJ's next Brewers radio broadcast comes Tuesday when Milwaukee faces the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at 2:55 p.m.

At this pace, it may be two big-time sluggers who could join the Brewers' Opening Day roster - one of them big-time in spring training, at least.

Khris Davis' power explosion in March is leaving a wake of "Will he make the roster?" questions abounding. 

The more power he produces, the better his chances.

The Journal Sentinel, Reviving the Brew and Rant Sports both check out that question.

Another issue to look at the final two weeks: will "promising" pitcher Mark Rogers get the chance to fulfill that promise on the final roster after a subpar spring?

The Racine Journal-Times looks into that.
