• Yovani Gallardo remains slated to start Wednesday's season finale, though that could change if Gallardo decides he's had enough. He topped 200 innings and 200 strikeouts in his last start for the fourth straight season.

"It's all about him. We brought him in today and talked to him about it, and it's what's best for him," Roenicke said. "If there's goals he wants to get to, if he wants the chance to win 17 games again ... then he's going to pitch. So we put that in his head. We're going to talk again a little bit [Tuesday] and see where we are."

If Gallardo opts out, the Brewers would pitch a series of relievers.

• Roenicke and his wife, Karen, will once again drive home to Southern California after the season finale. They made the same trip last year over three full days.

• One of the most vital Brewers staffers who almost never makes the news was promoted on Monday. Dan Larrea, whose tenure with the team goes back to 1996, was promoted to senior director of team travel.
