PHOENIX -- Jhoulys Chacín was named the Milwaukee Brewers' Opening Day starter a while back. Thursday, manager Craig Counsell announced the other four arms that will compose the starting rotation to start the season:

Jimmy Nelson's rehab will continue with AAA-San Antonio to start the season. 

Among the five starters Counsell named today, Anderson and Nelson, the Crew had seven candidates (health permitting) following the release of Josh Tomlin. Have have those seven hurlers fared in Spring Training 2019?
