MILWAUKEE -- Mark Rogers has had plenty of seasons end or fail to begin at all because of injuries.
It's hard to blame the right-hander for being a bit agitated when the Brewers decided to shut him down following his Aug. 31 start last season. With his team in the playoff race, Rogers wanted to keep contributing to the cause. It's also hard to disagree with the decision the team made.
Its former prized prospect was finally healthy and pitching well at the big league level. The Brewers saw no need to risk it all and push his innings past 134 13 after he tossed just 44 the year before.
"I wanted to pitch, that's for sure," said Rogers, 27. "I definitely wanted to pitch. I also appreciate them understanding my history and wanting me to be 100 percent prepared for this season. I've taken that very seriously, and I want to make sure I am 100 percent ready to rock and roll this season."

BEST OF MAXIM
MILWAUKEE -- Rickie Weeks will never fully admit it because he's as tough as nails.

But in reality his ankle wasn't healthy in the first half...
Former Milwaukee Brewers first-round pick Eric Arnett underwent reconstructive surgery on the ACL in his right knee Thursday and is expected to be sidelined for five to six months.
The Brewers made the expectation of Arnett's ACL diagnosis public Tuesday and said the right-hander was scheduled to be evaluated by team physician Dr. William Raasch in Phoenix on Wednesday to confirm...
SECOND TIME AROUND
After having a positive test overturned last Spring, Ryan Braun has been linked to PEDs once again as his name has shown up in Biogenesis records.
MILWAUKEE -- Just two years ago, Marco Estrada was across the parking lot.
At Maryvale Baseball Park, minor league camp is across the way from the big league camp and clubhouse, and If it weren't for Zack Greinke getting hurt playing pick-up basketball, Estrada probably would have never made the walk back to the side of the complex where he now belongs.
As he heads back to Phoenix...
One year later, we have the sequel: Major League Baseball vs. Ryan Braun, Part II.
Days before the start of spring training, MLB drug sleuths have a fresh opportunity to pursue allegations of performance-enhancing drug use against Braun. That is the biggest takeaway from Tuesday night's Yahoo! Sports report, which said Braun's name appeared in records of the Biogenesis clinic...

NEW YORK (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun said he used the person who ran the Florida clinic under investigation by Major League Baseball only as a consultant on his drug suspension appeal last year.
"I have nothing to hide," Braun said in a statement released by his representatives to The Associated Press on Tuesday night.
