"Hunter needed that and we needed to see that from him," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said of Morris, who had three hits in 18 at-bats in the spring. "
Milwaukee will play two exhibition games against the Kansas City Royals at Miller Park on Friday and Saturday.
Yovanni Gallardo will make his fifth opening day start for the Brewers against the Braves on Monday. Only Ben Sheets had made more (six) in franchise history, and Gallardo will set a franchise mark with his fifth straight start on opening day.
It’s getting to the point where the guys want to go and get this going," Roenicke said. "I think the two (exhibition) games at home before we start are important. I like that and I’m glad teams are willing to come in and play."
