Brewers choose to have Michael Blazek open season in bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Brewers pitcher Michael Blazek has won a spot in the bullpen to open the season, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“I don’t think it has completely hit me yet,” Blazek said Wednesday. “It probably won’t until I get (to Milwaukee). We’re still in spring training so I’ve still got that mind set.”

Blazek has held opponents to a .226 average and has struck out 18 batters in 17 1/3 innings this spring.

“They just said as of right now, you’re coming up there with us,” he said. “That’s all I really needed to hear. I know I’m going to be somewhere in the 'pen. I’m going to keep the same mind set and take it one day at a time.”
