Kim vs Villanueva.
The Brewers will likely have one of the top five rotations in the National League this season, and Villanueva is on the outside looking in. Colorado won't have a top five rotation, but we too are sending a starter not likely to be part of our starting five in Kim. Let's keep our fingers crossed that he comes out with an impressive performance and some scouts take notice.
Former Rockie JD Closser cleared waivers for the Brewers this week, something he couldn't do last fall with the Rockies, or we might still have him as our AAA catcher. Given that we are looking for backup backstops still, it says something about how we've raised the bar at what we expect of the position by not picking him up.
