News
Brewers shortstop Jean Segura arrived to spring training Tuesday ready to put his 2014 season behind him. A year after being an All-Star in 2013, Segura hit just .246 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 146 games last season.

"I'm trying to forget about what happened last year. I never been that unproductive in my career," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "That was my first time. Sometimes you need to have one of those years to learn what it takes to go to the next level.

"Pitchers are going to adjust to you and you need to adjust back. As a young guy, you don't realize what's going on. It was a tough year."

Segura said he made some changes to his batting stance, which he hopes will get him back on track offensively in 2015.

"I've been working on it because I had some troubles getting out front with my left leg," said Segura, who is holding his hands back more and putting more weight on his back leg. "It works. I used it in winter ball and it worked for me. I'm going to continue to do it. It helps me stay back more."

News
Brewers outfielder Khris Davis realizes he didn't show patience at the plate last year in his first full major-league season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"I built a reputation in the organization of being a patient hitter," Davis said. "I felt like I wasn't a patient hitter at all last year. I was a little eager, wanting to please too much, too early. I found out I'm human."

Davis drew just 32 walks in 549 plate appearances while posting a .299 OBP in 2014, a number far away from his career .392 OBP in the minors.

"He was different last year," manager Ron Roenicke said. "Everybody goes through different phases. Guys change. (His walk total) was too low. He's a guy I think should be fairly patient. He sees pitches well. When he starts getting anxious, he becomes more aggressive and chases more. He realizes it, which is the first step. If you don't realize it and don't listen to other people when they tell you that, then you have issues. You have to have good self-awareness to be a good player. Sometimes these players don't have good self-awareness. But if they had better self-awareness they'd be a better player."

Davis is determined to fulfill the potential that caused the organization to move Ryan Braun to right field before the 2014 season and plug Davis into the regular left-field role.

"I can't thank them enough for having patience with me," Davis said. "I'm going to work it out. When you get here, you want to stay. That's the toughest part at first. I don't think this league has seen the best of me yet. I'm ready to pull that out and prove it day by day. I learned so many lessons there are too many to name."

Davis hit .244/.299/.457 with 22 home runs and 69 RBI in 501 at-bats.

News
Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg is heading into spring training without a defined role with the club. However, he knows he will be utilized wherever and whenever manager Ron Roenicke needs him.

"It's kind of like that blessing and curse of being versatile," Thornburg said. "You never really know what you're going to do, but you're always going to be doing something."

Roenicke said he could see Thornburg emerge as a starter if anyone in the rotation went down.

"If something happens -- and hopefully it won't -- to our five guys, he's a guy who could step in and start for us," Roenicke said.

Thornburg posted a 3-1 record with a 4.25 ERA in 2014 with 28 strikeouts over 29 2/3 innings pitched.

"Honestly, I'm a little nervous/excited to see how the games are, just because I've been out of it so long," Thornburg said. "I don't think anything is going to be any different."

News
Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez said Friday the 2015 season will likely be his last in the majors. The 36-year-old Ramirez is entering his 18th season in the majors and fourth with the Brewers.

"I don't want a multi-year deal. I wasn't looking forward to that. I'm comfortable here," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"I'm going to play this year and probably be done after this year. I don't know if I want to play after this year. I think this is it. We'll see what happens, but I don't think I'll play after this year.

"It's more of a family thing. I've got three kids, I've been playing for a long time, been away for a long time. Sometimes it's just time to do something else."

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said he is not surprised by Ramirez's announcement.

"We anticipated that anyways," he said. "It's not stunning. I think when he accepted our deal to come back that was probably a message. He didn't go out on the market. He's always said it's never been about the money."

Ramirez made the All-Star team in 2014 for the third time in his career. He has a career .285 average, .344 on-base percentage, .496 slugging percentage and .840 OPS.

Brewers starting pitcher Mike Fiers said he still thinks about the night he hit Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton in the face with a fastball. However, despite the horrific moment during a September start last season, Fiers said he can't be afraid to pitch inside, per MLB.com.

"It's obviously still in my head. You get flashbacks every once in a while," Fiers said. "That moment was really tough for a lot of people, but it's definitely behind. I had to put it behind me pretty quick, you know? We were in a tough situation, in a playoff race. I didn't want to be the one where I hit somebody and I was scared to pitch again, especially with this team needing quality starts going into that last month of the season.

"[Stanton] knows it was definitely an accident. Me pitching the way I do, I have to pitch up, I have to pitch in, I have to pitch everywhere."

In three starts after beaning Stanton, Fiers went 0-3, but he posted two quality starts and a 3.00 ERA. Fiers had a pretty good run in the majors last season, going 6-5 with a 2.13 ERA in 14 outings (10 starts).

"Pitching 'in' is huge," he said. "[I figured that out] even before I got to pro ball, especially with those [aluminum] bats they use. If you threw in, you had to throw in off [the plate], and then go back away. But they had to respect that pitch in. You can't just sit there and throw away, away, away. Even the lower-level hitters are going to adjust."

Brewers infielder Scooter Gennett is glad to have a full-time role heading into 2015, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Gennett spent last season in a platoon with Rickie Weeks, but with Weeks gone, he'll assume the full-time role. Gennett said he feels far less stressed about his position on the team this spring. "Seeing as I'm pretty much the everyday guy, that eliminated the stress, or whatever you want to call it, off my back," he said. 

"Just not having to worry about stuff out of my control. I've put myself in this position where I've earned the job, I've shown them what I can do, and now it's about consistently doing it," he added. 

Manager Ron Roenicke has already said he'll give Gennett plenty of opportunities to prove himself against left-handers. 

Gennett, 24, hit .289/.320/.434 over 440 at-bats last season.

Shoulder - Out until at least early March (Updated - 2/24/15)
News
Brewers pitcher Jim Henderson is scheduled to throw to live batters Sunday for the first time in nearly a year. For Henderson, it's a long time coming.

"I'll be curious after live BP, because that's when hitters step in and the intensity picks up more," said Henderson. "We'll see how it feels after that, and then once the games start, I'll be curious for sure. Then I'll be able to see how far away we are. Right now, it feels good, it feels strong, it feels healthy, but I've always been a velocity guy, so [seeing those numbers] will tell me how far I need to go."

Henderson underwent shoulder surgery during early in 2014, forcing him to miss the majority of the season.

"I feel like I'd be in the low to mid-90s if I wanted to let one go right now, but I really have no idea," Henderson said. "It's hard to tell without a hitter. For me, even when we're in season, I'll throw my last warmup pitch and look at the radar gun and it says 91 [mph]. Then the first pitch to a hitter will be 95 [mph]. So it's hard to tell with me."

News
Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson didn't throw live batting practice as scheduled Saturday, with the team choosing to let his injured hamstring rest, MLB.com reports.

Manager Ron Roenicke reiterated Saturday that Nelson's hamstring injury is minor and that the pitcher is scheduled to throw Sunday. Roenicke added that he "would be surprised" if the pitcher was pushed back again.

Nelson saw his first significant action with the Brewers in 2014, going 2-9 with a 4.93 ERA and 57:19 K:BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings.

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun expects to be "one of the best players in the league" this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

The 31-year-old has seen his production tail off in recent years due to a thumb injury, but it sounds like he believes the issue is behind him this season. "So far it feels great," Braun said. "Everything so far has gone as well as I could have possibly hoped. Hopefully, the next few weeks it continues to do the same and we can stop talking about it at some point in the near future."

Braun will not be limited during spring training, but admitted he'll keep an eye on how many swings he's taking. Braun put in more work than usual during the offseason, and said his thumb felt "really good." 

While health is the key, Braun expressed confidence in his ability to regain his status as a top player in the league. "I've always felt like if I'm healthy, success is inevitable," he said. "I think most of us would feel the same way. As long as I'm healthy, I expect to go out there, be productive and do the things I've always done."

Braun hit .266/.324/.453 over 530 at-bats last year.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will spend spring training judging his infielder's versatility for depth behind Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett, per MLB.com.

Milwaukee has three shortstops on its 40-man roster with the chance to break camp with the big-league club. Hector Gomez, 26, and Luis Sardinas, 21, are expected to see time at second base behind Scooter Gennett.

"We want to give Scooter a chance against lefties, but if there's a day off we want to give him, or if it works out that we need to have a [right-handed hitting] guy there more often, who's it going to be?" Roenicke said. "Is it going to be Sardinas? Jimenez, because we know he hits lefties well? Who's that other guy who's going to be there?"

Yadiel Rivera, 22, should see some work at third behind Aramis Ramirez.
