8/27/2014 @ SAN DIEGO  
TORONTO: TORONTO (AP) - All winter long, the Blue Jays' primary concern was upgrading the starting pitching. The biggest story in Toronto this spring, though, is the one about the free agent arm that got away.
After months of inaction, the Blue Jays thought they'd landed right-hander Ervin Santana on a one-year deal in early March. But when injury concerns flared up in Atlanta, Santana signed a similar deal with the Braves instead.
''I think it's pretty obvious we were involved, it didn't work out. I'm trying to take the high road here,'' general manager Alex Anthopoulos said after Santana turned him down, saying he'd rather pitch in a spacious National League park than face AL East foes in Toronto's hitter-friendly dome.
Anthopoulos, who'd previously come ''extremely close'' to acquiring a starter through trade, must now start the season with almost the same staff he took north last year. Right-handed knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, the 2012 NL Cy Young winner, will be the opening-day starter again, while left-hander Mark Buehrle gets the third slot.
But none of the other three leading contenders, right-handers Brandon Morrow and Drew Hutchison, and left-hander J.A. Happ, have ever pitched 200 innings, and all three are coming off injuries. Morrow was limited to 10 starts last year by a nerve problem in his forearm, Hutchison hasn't pitched in the majors since elbow surgery in 2012, and Happ missed most of 2013 after being hit in the head by a line drive. Happ dimmed his own chances with an awful spring.
Santana, who has topped the 200-inning mark five times, would have given the Blue Jays valuable depth. Without him, there's more chance they'll need starts from touted but untested youngsters like Kyle Drabek, Sean Nolin, and Marcus Stroman.
Still, a confident Dickey insisted Santana would have been more ''bonus'' than ''necessity'' to Toronto. ''I feel like we have what we need,'' he said.
MILWAUKEE: MILWAUKEE (AP) - Two pitches into his spring training return, the Brewers' most important player tried to prove his point.
Home run, Ryan Braun.
Now let's see how he fares when the games count.
Bolstered by the return of Braun from a 65-game doping suspension and the signing of free-agent starter Matt Garza, Milwaukee enters the 2014 season hoping it has the pieces to contend again in the competitive NL Central.
Braun has vowed to return to his 2011 MVP form.
''I think the expectation is to have an opportunity to compete to get back to the playoffs. That's our goal, I think it's realistic,'' Braun said during spring training in Phoenix.
Staying healthy would help, too. Besides Braun's suspension, injuries sapped much of the Brewers' power last year with projected 3-4-5 hitters Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart each missing various lengths of time. Hart never played because of a knee injury.
Hart is gone, but Braun and Ramirez are back and bolstered by new team cornerstones who emerged last season in Carlos Gomez, Jean Segura and Jonathan Lucroy.

*Blue Jays-Brewers Preview* ===========================


Toronto (64-61) at Milwaukee (70-55), 2:10 p.m. EDT

Powered by the red-hot bats of Jonathan Lucroy and Aramis Ramirez, the Milwaukee Brewers are rolling again after a brief offensive slump.

That duo is only making things more difficult for the Toronto Blue Jays, who compounded yet another woeful pitching performance Tuesday with an inept offensive showing.

Milwaukee looks for a sixth straight win Wednesday when it hosts Toronto.

The Brewers (71-55) slogged through a 1-3 stretch from Aug.10-13, totaling six runs. They've since won five in a row while averaging 5.6 runs and were 5 for 11 with runners in scoring position in a 6-1 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday night.

Ramirez and Lucroy each had two doubles, with Lucroy increasing his major league-leading total to 42. Ramirez is batting .426 over his last 17 games with eight extra-base hits, and he's 7 for 14 with eight RBIs in four career matchups with Toronto at Miller Park.

Lucroy is 6 for 17 over his last four games, with five of those hits going for extra bases.

"Luc always has good at-bats," manager Ron Roenicke said.

Complementing the offensive effort was an impressive outing by Mike Fiers, who allowed Toronto's only two hits over seven innings.

Milwaukee's five straight wins are its most since its season-best nine-game run from April 4-13.

The Blue Jays (64-62) have lost six of seven, with their pitchers posting a 6.95 ERA in that span. J.A. Happ allowed four runs in 3 1-3 innings on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Dioner Navarro and Colby Rasmus provided Toronto's only hits, and Jose Reyes was 0 for 4 - snapping a nine-game hitting streak in which he batted .405.

"We're in a little bit of a rut," manager John Gibbons said.

The Blue Jays will look for a lift from R.A. Dickey (9-12, 3.95 ERA), who is seeking his first win in four tries and has allowed four runs in 12 innings over his last two outings. He paid for his only mistake in six innings Wednesday at Seattle - a first-inning two-run homer by Kendrys Morales - in a 2-0 defeat.

"I have to tip my hat," Dickey, who is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA in three interleague starts, told MLB's official website. "But outside of that (home run) I felt like I battled pretty good tonight."

The right-hander is 1-1 with a 2.63 ERA in five games - three starts - against the Brewers, but hasn't faced them since taking a 6-2 loss on Aug. 21, 2011, with the New York Mets. Dickey gave up two runs in seven innings.

Lucroy is 3 for 6 off Dickey with a double, and Carlos Gomez is 6 for 10 against the knuckleballer.

Milwaukee starter Jimmy Nelson (2-3, 3.86) faced the Dodgers in each of his last two turns, giving up two runs over six innings both times. He suffered a 5-1 defeat Aug. 10 and didn't receive a decision in Milwaukee's 6-3 road win Friday. The latter marked his fifth straight quality start, though he's won just one of those outings.

"Jimmy was good. I liked his command," Roenicke told MLB's official website after Friday's victory. "...I thought that was one of his better games."

Opponents are batting .283 against Nelson over four day games compared to .222 in three night contests.
