• Left-hander Michael Gonzalez and the Brewers made a wise call Friday, moving the veteran's scheduled outing to a Minor League game because rain was in the forecast. Gonzalez, who was not impressive in his two Cactus League appearances, said the inning went "really well."

"I got my fastball command down where I needed it," Gonzalez said. "Breaking stuff was crisp. I was pretty pleased with the result yesterday. My big goal right now is to leave this Spring Training healthy. My numbers are going to get there. Stuff is going to get there. I'm just kind of getting into that mode."

• Right-hander Wily Peralta had an up-and-down day against the Reds, allowing three earned runs on five hits and a walk in 2 1/3 innings Saturday. But he apparently impressed plate umpire Tony Randazzo.

"The umpire didn't know whether he was throwing a screwball or what," Roenicke said. "He said it was moving all over the place. It must be the change-up he was talking about."
