Brewers RP Will Smith targeting 80 appearances in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers relief pitcher Will Smith is targeting 80 appearances in 2015 after sharing the league lead with 78 appearances last season, the Journal Sentinel reports.

"I'll tell (manager) Ron (Roenicke) that I want 80 this year," he said.

Smith excelled early last season before struggling during the middle part of the year while he was carrying a heavy workload. However, he was able to bounce back in September. Smith took part in a different type of offseason workout in an attempt to strengthen his legs, allowing him to stay stronger longer.

"I take pride in having really strong legs that can last all year, and I worked really hard this offseason on a squat program that our trainer put us through," Smith said. "Last year we’d do more two sets of 10 and not as heavy. This year we did five sets of two and it’s heavy, heavy weight. We did back squats, front squats – we did them all. A lot of high weight, and it was intense. It hurt some days. I live on the third floor of my apartment complex and walking up the stairs I’d be like, ‘Oh, this is tough.’ But it was fun. I had a good time with it."

Roenicke indicated that the team won't tread lightly when the team needs Smith on the mound.

"When we need him, we’ll pitch him," Roenicke said. "And as long as he performs like he did last year, he’s going to get some very important innings for us and I really don’t think I need to go easy with him."

Brewers have yet to finalize contract with K-Rod
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday the team has yet to finalize a contract with closer Francisco Rodriguez, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Rodriguez has agreed to a two-year, $13 million contract, which includes a team option for 2017.

"They're still working on finalizing the contract, and after that the (work) visa (in Venezuela)," Roenicke said. "Sometimes it's not that easy to say, 'Well, we've finished the contract,' and walk in and get the visa the next day."

Roenicke added he isn't worried about Rodriguez not getting enough work because he has had shortened springs in the past. In 2014, Rodriguez missed time during spring training because of visa issues and a foot injury.

Brewers set spring rotation, Kyle Lohse lined up for opening day
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse will start the team's Cactus League opener Thursday, MLB.com reports, lining Lohse up to receive the opening-day start on April 6.

Though Lohse appears in line to start opening day, he dodged a question regarding the potential assignment. "How about we answer that question when something is official?" Lohse said.

After Lohse's Thursday start, the Brewers will line up Matt Garza, Wily Peralta, Mike Fiers and Jimmy Nelson in the spring rotation, FOXSportsWisconsin.com reports.

Brewers' Taylor Jungmann taking new approach into this season
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Brewers pitcher Taylor Jungmann is taking a new approach into this season, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Jungmann got off to a slow start last season, but a change in approach prompted him to reverse his fortunes. Triple-A pitching coach Fred Danby suggested Jungmann shift from the left side of the pitching rubber to the right side. Jungmann said he had always been told his stuff played better from the left side, but felt a change instantly after switching spots.

"I can’t explain it but I started throwing more strikes," he said. "My mechanics were a little more fluid. I didn’t change a whole lot; I just moved to the other side of the rubber. It felt natural. It made it a little easier to be consistent with my (pitching) motion. The biggest thing was getting my breaking ball back."

Jungmann comes into camp fighting for a spot in the team's rotation. He's already been listed as sixth on the starting pitching depth chart.
