• Closer Jim Henderson, who has not been particularly sharp this spring, pitched two innings in a Minor League game earlier this week and is expected to return to "A game" action on Saturday against the Angels.
• After the Brewers committed five errors on the infield in Friday's 7-5 loss to the Rangers, a reporter suggested to Roenicke that the defense was "a little rough." Roenicke barely cracked a smile.
"Yeah, it was rough. Good way to put it," said Roenicke, who refused to chalk up the miscues to the hard Arizona dirt. "We just didn't play well. You're going to have games like this, and this is what we're trying to stay away from. I don't know how many we've had, but we've had some bad defensive games. That's why we work so hard on fundamentals and turning two and all those little things. We made [starter Yovani Gallardo] throw a lot more pitches."
