Updated bullpen candidates for Milwaukee

Had to post an update of relief candidates heading to Maryvale…after Melvin added three more on Thursday, while losing one. Other changes–“virtual locks” are listed first; I removed Ray King (not coming back) and Adam Pettyjohn (free agent), Carlos Villanueva (moved to rotation) and Chris Capuano (moved to rotation): LOCKS (4): Derrick Turnbow, David Riske, Guillermo Mota, Brian Shouse BATTLING (17): Greg Aquino, Joe Bateman, Steve Bray, Dave Bush, Richard Campbell, Randy Choate, Mark DiFelice, Tim Dillard, Zach Jackson, Seth McClung, Manny Parra, Luis Peña, Marino Salas, Juan Sandoval, Mitch Stetter, Claudio Vargas, and Matt Wise. With this many candidates for the final 4 spots (the #5 starter could be a reliever for some of the time), both the parent club and AAA should be well stocked come April.
