Kyle Lohse threw 60 pitches over four innings in a morning intrasquad game at Maryvale Baseball Park as the Brewers further aligned their pitching rotation. Roenicke, however, still was not prepared to name his Opening Day starter.

• Minor League coach Al LeBoeuf was showered with hugs and handshakes when he visited big league camp on Wednesday. LeBoeuf is returning to a regular role in the organization after fighting cancer for the last year and a half.

He had a stem cell transplant on Dec. 23, and was cancer-free as of Jan. 6.

"I golfed nine holes before coming down here, my first nine holes in two years," said LeBouef, whose battle began when he felt numbness in his legs while playing golf. "I shot a 47, but I couldn't have cared less if I shot a 147. I'm just happy to be here."

LeBoeuf will serve as the hitting coach for the Arizona League Brewers this season.
