• Though the Brewers will be in Denver this weekend, drivers could experience heavy traffic around Miller Park, because the stadium is hosting about 35,000 people on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the Regional Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT each day. Organizers expect traffic to be at its peak during the Friday-morning rush hour.
• The Brewers on Wednesday formally announced deals with eighth-round Draft pick JB Kole, a right-hander from Villanova University, and 10th-rounder Javier Salas, a right-hander from the University of Miami. Each of Milwaukee's first 12 selections -- and 25 overall -- has signed.
The Brewers also signed undrafted free agent Wesley Cox, a right-hander from the University of Texas-San Antonio.
All three were assigned to Rookie-level Helena.
• Roenicke had high praise on Wednesday for Arizona slugger Paul Goldschmidt.
"I can't tell you that there's somebody better in the game than he is," Roenicke said. "Maybe there is. I can name some guys, maybe three or four, that are as good as him. He's incredible. The at-bats, we've tried to pitch him hard in, and he hits a homer. We've tried to pitch him down and away, and he hits a homer or a double in the gap. We try to pitch him offspeed, and he rips that. We try to go hard stuff up, he rips that. There's not any holes. It's really hard to pitch to guys that don't have any weaknesses, and I don't see any. Maybe we're doing something wrong, but I don't see any."
