*Shelby Miller is back, maybe

After a disappointing finish to 2013, Shelby Miller did not pitch well in his first two outings of 2014, leading to questions about his performance for the rest of the season. A positive start against Milwaukee eased some minds, but questions remain.

*Previewing Peoria: The not-so-distant future

Lots of high upside talent in the low minors to start the year, with more potentially on the way mid-season.

DFR: McElroy's three hits, and Reyes' five walks

C.J. McElroy scored three times for Peoria. Alex Reyes struck out 5 in 3 IP, but also handed out 5 free passes (an early trend for him this season).

Lynn pitches seven dominant innings, while Peralta and Jay hit home runs so Allen Craig doesn't have to.

Q&A with BrewCrewBall & Series Preview

Noah Jarosh of BrewCrewBall answers some questions about the Brewers for 2014 and the future.

Allen Craig's trouble getting the ball in the air

Despite a very good 2013, there were concerns about Allen Craig in 2014 after seeing a power drop last year and ending the regular season injured. He has done nothing to limit those concerns this season, suffering the worst slump of his career.

What's the deal with Trevor Rosenthal's fastball?

The Cardinals' flame-throwing righthander has uncharacteristically seen his fastball speed dip into the mid-90s as opposed to his normal high-90s velocity. Should we be worried?

DFR: Jones & Stoppelman scuffle, farm goes winless

Cardinal affiliates go 0-3 on the day and Alex Reyes' Peoria start against Bowling Green is canceled due to rain. Some days, it rains. Think about that for a minute...
