Hank gained fame a year ago after wandering into the Brewers' spring camp, where he was cared for by players and coaches while the team searched for his owner. Eventually, he was adopted by a member of the front office and moved permanently to Milwaukee. In December, he was named "Dog of the Year" at a televised event in Los Angeles.
The Brewers have sold nearly $1 million worth of Hank-themed merchandise, with 20 percent of proceeds benefiting the Humane Society.
• First baseman Adam Lind is dealing with back stiffness, manager Ron Roenicke said. The discomfort only affects Lind in the field, when he bends over to field grounders. It does not bother him at the plate, because Lind is still able to rotate his torso without any issue, Roenicke said.
In his first year with the Brewers, Lind is expected to be the club's Opening Day first baseman.
