• The Brewers optioned right-hander Josh Stinson to Triple-A Nashville and returned catcher Dayton Buller to Minor League camp after Friday's loss to the Cubs. The moves left 34 players in big league camp.
• Center fielder Carlos Gomez, who exited Thursday's game with lower back tightness, was out of the lineup Friday but Roenicke reiterated that the issue was minor. Gomez would play were this the regular season, Roenicke said.
• The Brewers have "backed off" infielder Bianchi's baseball activities because he continues to suffer from a hip injury, Roenicke said. The news was better for another infielder with a sore hip, Green, who was feeling better Friday. It will be a few days before the Brewers know when Green will be able to play.
Asked whether either player was a candidate for the Opening Day disabled list, Roenicke said, "I would say that you have to say it's possible, yes. Bianchi, because of the length of time he's been out."
• The Brewers honored the Class A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers on the field Friday for winning last year's Midwest League title. Players from that team, including Mitch Haniger (No. 11 on MLB.com's list of the top Brewers prospects) and Drew Gagnon (No. 14), received their championship rings.
