Yost looks for discipline at the plate

PHOENIX (AP) -- Milwaukee Brewers manager Ned Yost says he's looking for discipline at the plate from his two big hitters -- Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun.

Yost says they're not going to get a lot of good pitches because pitchers are going to be very nervous when Fielder and Braun step into the box.

Fielder hit 50 homers and drove in 119 runs last season. He drew 90 walks in 681 plate appearances. Braun slugged 34 homers with 97 RBI and landed NL rookie of the year honors. He collected only 29 walks in 492 plate appearances.
