Platoon destined to mean boatload of strikeouts for Brewers

Defense going to be key in Brewers' 1B competiton
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke hinted Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay could have "an edge" over Juan Francisco and Hunter Morris at first base because of their defensive skills in the field, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Obviously, everybody isn't going to make our team among the first basemen," Roenicke said. "With Overbay and Reynolds, we know from their history what we're getting from them. We know that Juan Francisco has power and is going to hit a lot of home runs if he's the guy. The other guys, they are younger. Hunter Morris struggled a little bit in Triple-A last year but figured it out in the second half, which I really liked. So, we'll see.

"If one of the younger guys steps up, then things change. But going into spring training we do feel we have a veteran presence there. Defense also matters to me a lot there. If we think we're better off defensively with the two veterans, that gives them an edge."
