Shaun Marcum has missed nearly two months due with an elbow injury, but he’s finally getting closer to rejoining the Brewers’ starting rotation.
Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Marcum allowed one run over three innings tonight in his first rehab start with Class A Wisconsin. The only hit he allowed was a solo homer. He struck out three, walked none and threw 28 out of 36 pitches for strikes.
According to Brewers media relations director Mike Vassallo, Marcum will make his next rehab start Wednesday. Barring any setbacks, it’s possible he could be activated after that.
Marcum, 31, was 5-3 with a 3.39 ERA and 77/26 K/BB ratio in 82 1/3 innings through 13 starts prior to being placed on the disabled list. He is poised to hit free agency this offseason.
