Shaun Marcum hasn’t pitched for the Brewers since June 14 due to right elbow tightness, but that should change very soon.
According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Marcum allowed just one run over six innings tonight in his latest rehab start with Low-A Wisconsin. He allowed four hits and one walk while striking out three.
Adam McCalvy and Jeremy Warnemuende of MLB.com reported earlier this evening that Brewers general manager Doug Melvin and manager Ron Roenicke will meet tomorrow to discuss changes in the starting rotation, but assuming Marcum came out of tonight’s outing feeling good, he should be activated from the disabled list to start Saturday or Sunday against the Pirates.
Marcum, 30, had a 3.39 ERA and 77/26 K/BB ratio in 82 1/3 innings over 13 starts prior to being placed on the disabled list. The veteran right-hander is due to hit free agency this offseason.
