  1. Last call: Brewers report strong individual ticket sales
    Last Call is a spot for all the notes and anecdotes from Brewers camp that didn't find a home elsewhere on the site. Today, hot tickets off the frozen presses.
  2. Brewers will be in run mode again
    Even after putting the brakes on some of the Brewers' aggressive baserunning late last season, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has not wavered in his belief that taking chances on the bases creates more benefit than harm.
  3. Henderson on road to recovery
    Unless Mother Nature has other ideas, Brewers reliever Jim Henderson will encounter a milestone on Sunday, when he is scheduled to face hitters for the first time since last year's right shoulder surgery. It's only live batting practice, but Henderson views it as a notable step in his comeback bid.
  4. Family ties give Aramis good reason to end stellar career
    While the Brewers weren't fully prepared for Ramirez's announcement that he plans to retire at the end of the season, they weren't shocked, either. It's clear the 36-year-old from the Dominican Republic is prepared to walk away no matter what happens in 2015.
  5. Last call: Nelson again scratched from live BP
    For the second straight day, the Brewers scratched right-hander Jimmy Nelson from scheduled live batting practice because of a slight hamstring tweak.
  6. After 2015 season, Aramis will call it a career
    Shedding light on why he exercised his half of a mutual option with the Brewers in October rather than seek a multiyear contract in free agency, Aramis Ramirez said Friday that his 20th professional season will also be his last.
  7. Brewers will look at all angles to find Ramirez's replacement
    Brewers officials weren't surprised Friday when Aramis Ramirez announced he intends to retire after this season. Club officials had already been thinking about who's on deck to play third base.
  8. Last Call: K-Rod one of many to keep coming home
    Thursday marked the fifth time since 2011 that the Brewers acquired Francisco Rodriguez. They traded for him in '11, saw him enter free agency, only to accept arbitration and return, then signed him as a free agent in '13, '14 and now '15.
  9. Attanasio addresses team, emphasizes confidence
    Brewers owner Mark Attanasio has suggested he was too drowned in disappointment last September to speak to players before they went home for the winter. So when he stepped forward in the clubhouse at Maryvale Baseball Park on Thursday, he had plenty to say.
  10. Brewers' deal with K-Rod shakes up bullpen
    The Brewers' two-year deal with Francisco Rodriguez caused a ripple effect throughout the rest of the bullpen, but if the man most affected -- Jonathan Broxton -- was feeling down about a potentially reduced role, he didn't let on.
  11. K-Rod inks two-year deal with Brewers
    All-Star closer Francisco Rodriguez, who saved 44 games with the Brewers last season, agreed Thursday to a two-year, $13 million free-agent contract that includes a club option.
  12. Thumb better, Braun vows return to elite
    Now comes the real test for Ryan Braun and his meddlesome right thumb. The Brewers outfielder reported to camp in full health, vowing to rejoin the list of baseball's elite hitters.
  13. Last Call: Attanasio address on deck
    Brewers owner Mark Attanasio will headline a long morning meeting Thursday ahead of the Brewers' first full-squad workout. It will be the first time he addresses his team in a full year.
  14. Roenicke juggling options for infield depth
    The Brewers know what their defense-first crop of young shortstops can do at that position, so manager Ron Roenicke will spend the spring judging those players' versatility as he seeks to set personnel for the bench.
  15. As Braun goes, so go the Brewers
    There is no way to gloss over what Ryan Braun means to the Brewers. He is the face of the franchise and the guy they made the commitment to keep, looking to build their long-term success around him. A return to form from the former NL MVP will be vital if Milwaukee wants to make a run at its first World Series title.
  16. Fiers not letting Stanton beanball affect pitching style
    Mike Fiers still thinks about the wayward fastball that struck Giancarlo Stanton in the face last September, but said he must continue to pitch inside if he's to remain successful in the Major Leagues.
  17. After year of heartbreak, Segura sees better days ahead
    Jean Segura arrived at Maryvale Baseball Park bearing news of a better finish to what was a tough 2014 season.
  18. Thornburg ready to contribute any way he can
    Tyler Thornburg would love to settle into a set role. But for now, the right-hander remains the Swiss Army knife of the Brewers' pitching staff.
