Spring training is winding down for the Brewers, and they are less than three weeks away from kicking off yet another season of America’s favorite pastime.
Who will take the mound for the Brewers in their first game of the season?
Chase Anderson has earned the start against the San Diego Padres on March 29th.
Anderson, the 30-year-old right handed pitcher had a 12-4 record for the BrewCrew last season. He had an ERA of 2.74, which was very impressive for Milwaukee. Last season was by far his best season as a professional baseball player.
Chase was acquired in a trade back in 2016 with the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for Jean Segura. He beat out Jimmy Nelson and Zach Davies for the starting job.
The Brewers have had five different pitchers start on opening day for the last five seasons. The last to start two seasons in a row? Yovanni Gallardo. Gallardo started from 2013-2014 for the Brewers.
Gallardo rejoined the team this offseason and is unlikely to be a part of Milwaukee’s starting rotation.
Watch as the Brewers kick off their highly anticipated season, and Anderson makes his first opening day start as the Brewers take on the Padres in San Diego on March 29th.
