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.

Brewers' Jimmy Nelson likely to miss one spring start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson will likely miss one spring start, according to MLB.com.

Nelson came into camp dealing with a hamstring injury, but was able to throw a bullpen session on Sunday. He reported no issues on Monday, and is close to getting back on a normal schedule. Despite that, he's likely to miss out on one start this spring. Manager Ron Roenicke doesn't think it's a big deal. "You could say he's behind, but do they really need all those games?" Roenicke said. "I don't know."

The 25-year-old Nelson is expected to compete for a spot in the team's rotation this spring. He posted a 4.93 ERA over 69 1/3 innings last year.

Brewers pitcher Mike Fiers will start the team's exhibition game on Wednesday, according to MLB.com.

The club will take on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Fiers will start, while Corey Knebel and Taylor Williams will come on in relief. The Brewers will start Cactus League play on Thursday, but manager Ron Roenicke has yet to announce his pitchers for that game. 

Fiers, 29, is coming off a breakout season in which he posted a 2.13 ERA over 71 2/3 innings.

Brewers' Roenicke working on ways to get Gerardo Parra into lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra seems fine with his role as a reserve outfielder, despite being a Gold-Glove-caliber defender.

"No, I'm happy," he said of his situation, per MLB.com. "I don't think nothing like that, like we have a lot of outfielders. The only thing is working and playing every day and doing my job.

"I say again, if I don't play every day, I won't feel bad. If I do play every day, I will be happy too. My job is to play baseball in a Milwaukee uniform to do the best I can."

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke loves Parra's attitude. He added since Parra can play all three outfield positions, he will do his best to work Parra into the lineup.

"He's really got a great attitude, but he wants to be out there," Roenicke said. "In my mind, if I had got him 200 at-bats this year, he'd be disappointed. He's a better player than that and we need to get him out there.

"I told you guys before, usually when you give your three guys a day off, it's because they really need to have it, but it's not that way with Parra because, for me, Parra is a starter. So I consider him a guy that, if the matchups are good for him, he's going to be in the game. I'm not waiting for somebody to be tired and has to have a day off. It's going to be different with him."

Jim Henderson throws off mound Sunday where season ended last year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Brewers pitcher Jim Henderson completed his first session against live batters Sunday and felt a weight lift off his shoulders, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"That same mound I threw on just now was the same mound that I realized the season was over on last year, so I was thinking about that when I got out there," Henderson said.

"I was like, ‘Forget this mound.’ It was kind of one of those moments where it was like this is where it ended and this is where it's going to begin again."

Henderson threw against three batters in Sunday's practice.

"It went well," he said. "It was just more of getting the feel out there today. Seeing the hitters and getting on a game mound again, just trying to get the feel back. That’s what I was looking for out of it – that competitiveness – and that’s what I got out of it."
