2012 Milwaukee Brewers Opening Day 25-Man Roster

Here is the initial 25-man roster for the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers in alphabetical order by position:

Catchers (2): George Kottaras and Jonathan Lucroy

Infielders (6): Mat Gamel (1B), Alex Gonzalez (SS), Travis Ishikawa (1B), Cesar Izturis (SS), Aramis Ramirez (3B), and Rickie Weeks (2B)

Outfielders (5): Norichika Aoki (OF), Ryan Braun (LF), Carlos Gomez (CF), Corey Hart (RF/1B), and Nyjer Morgan (CF)

Starting Pitchers (5): Zack Greinke (R), Yovani Gallardo (R), Shaun Marcum (R), Chris Narveson (L), and Randy Wolf (L)

Relief Pitchers (7): John Axford (R), Tim Dillard (R), Marco Estrada (R), Kameron Loe (R), Manny Parra (L), Francisco Rodriguez (R), and Jose Veras (R)

In my spring training preview of the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers I went 23 for 25 in predicting who would make the opening day roster. I incorrectly predicted that Taylor Green (3B) and Brandon Kintzler (RHP) would make the opening day roster. Instead Travis Ishikawa (1B) and Tim Dillard (R) made the initial roster.

The 25th roster spot went to Travis Ishikawa (1B) instead of Brooks Conrad (UTL). If I were in charge, I would have kept Conrad instead of Ishikawa for roster flexibility alone.

I will have more extended thoughts on all the roster decisions over the next few days. Check back tomorrow for my annual "Most Overpaid and Most Underpaid" post and Sunday for my rankings (25 down to 1) of the opening day roster.
