MLB…The Brewers opened spring training with a clubhouse full of familiar faces. Some of them will take on new roles as the team tries to defend its NL Central title in 2019. Nearly everybody reported to camp healthy and ready to go. Left-hander Brent Suter is Milwaukee’s only unavailable player at this point. He’s recovering from Tommy John surgery.
Left-handed reliever Xavier Cedeno and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to a $900.000, one-year contract. The deal is not guaranteed, meaning Cedeno could be released for termination pay before opening day.
