Today’s lineup against the flamethrower, Felix Hernandez will look like this:

2B Rickie Weeks
CF Mike Cameron
1B Prince Fielder
LF Ryan Braun
RF Corey Hart
3B Joe Dillon
SS J.J. Hardy
DH Matt LaPorta
C Jason Kendall
SP Ben Sheets (not hitting)

Mike Cameron will also see less time in center field during the next couple weeks, as Ned Yost wants to see Gabe Kapler, Tony Gwynn Jr., and Gabe Gross battle for playing time.  They all have been swinging the bat well thus far in Spring Training.  Ned Yost did mention the other day that he wants to see Tony less concerned about impressing the coaches with his at bats and just to start getting good at-bats in.

Salomon Torres is chomping at the bit to get in the Spring Training action.  He says that his arm feels great and that he’s ready to go whenever needed.  The Brewers staff will continue to bring him along slowly, though.  He still has a couple bullpen sessions to pitch before Ned will consider bringing him into a live game.  Milwaukee has been sticking to the “Cordero plan” for Torres.  They’re bringing him around slowly, so he does not wear out his arm too early in camp.  This happened after Torres complained of soreness in his arm and elbow when camp started.

Braun = Stud

I’m really excited to see Salomon pitch this season. I think he struggled last season because of injuries and just being unhappy in Pittsburgh. He should return to his ’04-’06 form this year. I hope he gets on the mound soon so we can see what he’s got.
