The Brewers head into the 2020 season with a very different roster from last season: out goes Mike Moustakas, Yasmani Grandal and multiple pitchers, in comes over 13 new players looking to replace what has left.

The team features players that can play multiple positions, with only Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, and Keston Hiura slated to start every day for the team. Depth is something POBO/GM David Stearns has preached since he took over as GM, and this roster is no different. How will the Brewers divvy up the plate appearances this season?


Brewers Manager Craig Counsell joined Bill on Wednesday to give his answer, and to give us a first hand look at how the Brewers Spring Training has gone so far:

- How does he think camp has gone so far?

- How is he enjoying the depth he has so far?

- What has he seen from Ryan Braun defensively at first base?

- What has he seen in the position battle between Orlando Arcia and Luis Urias so far this spring?

- How will the new pitching minimum rules affect how he manages a game?
