• Right-handed reliever Brandon Kintzler threw a "touch and feel" session off the mound Friday for the first time since the Brewers placed him on the 15-day disabled list with a mild right rotator cuff strain. Kintzler will throw a more intense bullpen on Sunday, and expects to be active by April 25, the Brewers' first game after his stint on the DL expires.
"You always take it day by day, but so far we're on track," Kintzler said. "I don't have any pain."
