Among the questions Roenicke and his coaches will mull in the coming weeks:
• Who hits leadoff? Scooter Gennett filled the role late last season, but Roenicke indicated he made that move in part to shake things up and because Carlos Gomez was needed in a run-producing role at the time. There's no guarantee Gennett will start the season in that spot.
• Is Aramis Ramirez, at 36, still a cleanup hitter? Things can change, but Roenicke's comments Monday hinted at Ryan Braun and Ramirez remaining in the three- and four-holes.
• Where do new first baseman Adam Lind's left-handed bat and high on-base percentage best fit? Lind and Gennett are the only left-handed hitters in the mix.
• What's the best place to maximize catcher Jonathan Lucroy's doubles-heavy production?
For his part, Gomez indicated he'd happily bat anywhere in the lineup.
"I don't care," Gomez said. "Whatever Ron feels is good for the team, I'm open."
Someday, Gomez wants to be a bona fide three- or four-hole hitter, and he said, "I think I'm going in the right direction."
The Brewers' first exhibition game is March 4 against the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Their first Cactus League game is March 5 against the Angels in Tempe, Ariz.
"Nothing's set," Roenicke said. "I have an idea where I think I want guys to be, and we come in here and we sit down and see what it looks like, we talk to guys, we see how healthy guys are. Then we put that lineup together, put it out there and see how it looks."
