Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

On Sunday all 30 Major League Baseball teams had to submit their 60-man player pool rosters moving forward into Spring Training and the regular season.

Several Brewers' players are already in Milwaukee doing individual workouts in preparation for the season.

Starting pitcher Brandon Woodruff threw four innings of live batting practice at Hitters Baseball Academy near Milwaukee.

"The only thing I can focus on is trying to keep myself in shape," said Woodruff. "Worry about being ready for the season and when the time comes, I'll be ready."

Woodruff was 11-3 in 22 starts last season.

Teammate and fellow pitcher Brent Suter is excited to get back to the baseball grind.

"I looked at my wife and it was a breath of fresh air. I was like, thank you, thank you! It was excitement, relief," said Suter about the upcoming season. "All really good feelings. Excited for the game to be back and excited to see everybody."

The Brewers haven't released their 60 game schedule yet, but they will play 40 divisional games, 10 of those against the Cubs.

The other 20 games are expected to be interleague games based off geographical significance.

The Brewers will start intake testing for COVID-19 for their players on Wednesday with their first full squad practice scheduled for Saturday July 4.
