The Brewers consider Tim Dillard a strong candidate to make their Opening Day roster.

"He's got a good chance to make our bullpen," manager Ron Roenicke said. "What I see of him, I really like what he's doing. He can get a strikeout on a really good hitter and that shows me something. He's really nasty if he can do that.'' Dillard has a 3.38 ERA in two appearances this spring, and has enough of a track record with the Brewers to be used in a middle relief role. The 28-year-old posted a 24/4 K/BB ratio in 24 appearances last season.

Brewers optioned RHP Tim Dillard to Triple-A Nashville.

"The way he's throwing, if he's this good, he's going to be in some late (close) ball games," said Roenicke. "He has been really good." A side-armer, Dillard has even been effective against left-handed batters to this point, holding them to a .133 average.

Tim Dillard is working on a new side-arm delivery.

"I've thrown a little bit like that and high school and college, so it's not that big a deal for me," said Dillard. "They didn't have to do a lot of convincing to get me to try it. I almost like being a little 'dirty.' I like the bullpen. If this is the role they see me in, I think I can do it." The 26-year-old right-hander is open to something new as he hopes to stick in the majors leagues. Dillard has a 6.27 ERA in 15 major league appearances.
Thu, Feb 25, 2010 12:48:00 PM
