• Roenicke said the Brewers remained open-minded about left-hander Tom Gorzelanny's role in the bullpen. His next outing will cover multiple innings, a move to stretch out Gorzelanny's arm in case he begins the season in a long-relief/spot-starter capacity. But he also could develop into a late-inning specialist, Roenicke said, depending on how fellow left-hander Mike Gonzalez and right-hander Jim Henderson are pitching.
