After an off-season procedure, Ryan Braun will enter the 2015 season with a clean bill of health. The 31-year old outfielder is a vital component in the Brewers offense and if he's able to return to his All-Star form, it will signal good things.

The Brewers acquired the 31-year old Adam Lind early in the off season. Lind provides the Brewers with some pop at first base, a position they hadn't got much offense from in recent seasons. Lind hit .321 in 96 games last season and is just a year removed from a 23 home run campaign in 2013.

Jimmy Nelson wasn't as lights out in the majors as he was in the minors last season, but the young right hander showed plenty of promise. After trading Yovani Gallardo to the Rangers, the Brewers opened up a rotation spot for Nelson. If Nelson is able to live up to his potential and put together a good season, the Brewers rotation is in good shape.

Brewers Are Refocused
After last season's collapse the Brewers will enter 2015 on a mission. Milwaukee got off to one of the best starts in baseball last season before everything fell apart. While the Brewers don't want to look back, it's hard to imagine they have completely forgotten last season. The 2015 Brewers will have a chip on their shoulder and will be determined to prove the second half of last season was a fluke.
The New Lefty
Zach Duke was a pleasant surprise in the bullpen last season and the Brewers are hoping Neal Cotts can be a similar type of player. Cotts, a left-hander, posted a 4.32 ERA in Texas last season, but the Brewers are hoping he can regain the form that resulted in a 1.11 ERA in 58 appearances in 2013.
