• Veteran left-hander Zach Duke stood out to Brewers coaches in the first round of live batting-practice sessions this week. Duke is a non-roster invitee bidding for a bullpen job.
"He's got better stuff than you think he does," manager Ron Roenicke said. "It's really 'live.' He's got good movement, he's got a real nice breaking ball. So he's doing what he can to show us pretty early on what's going on. But I don't want to make any evaluations when we're this early."
• The Brewers are planning to play a three-inning intrasquad game on Tuesday at Maryvale Baseball Park.
