Injury Settles Catching Position For Brewers

Manny Pina will open the regular season as the Milwaukee Brewers starting catcher.  He likely would have shared time with Stephen Vogt, but Vogt’s sore shoulder will keep him on the disabled list to begin 2018.  Jett Bandy will go north with the team as the backup catcher, but he won’t get a lot of playing time.  Pina is hitting .286 this spring with two home runs.  The Brewers gave up a run in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday against Colorado, settling for a 4-4 tie.  Outfielder Brett Phillips had given Milwaukee a 4-3 lead with a two-run homer in the top of the eighth, but the bullpen gave up the tying run.
