FILE – Milwaukee Brewers’ Hunter Renfroe signs autographs before a spring training baseball game against the San Diego Padres, March 30, 2022, in Peoria, Ariz. Renfroe looks quite comfortable in his first spring training with the Brewers after he was acquired in a Dec. 1 trade with the Boston Red Sox. It helps that he was already very familiar with several of his new teammates long before the deal was completed.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — The defending NL Central champion Milwaukee Brewers say their unfamiliar status as preseason division favorites shouldn’t impact their approach.
“My mindset is that that doesn’t help us in any way,” manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday. “If you could tell me how it did, I would use it, but that doesn’t help you in any way.”
