MILWAUKEE -- Left-hander Chris Narveson is back in the bullpen because of team off-days Monday and Thursday, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.

Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum will start the Brewers' two-game series against the Rockies, followed by Randy Wolf, Yovani Gallardo and Greinke in the following series in Cincinnati. Narveson will rejoin the rotation on Sept. 20 at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Asked whether the rotation is lined up for the postseason, Roenicke said, "Don't care. I'm concerned about getting there, and we can rearrange things at the end if we start playing well. This thing may come down to the last couple of days."


The Brewers entered Sunday's finale against the Phillies with a six-game lead over the Cardinals in the National League Central with 15 games to play. They trailed the D-backs by one-half game in the race for the NL's second-best record and the right to start a Division Series at home.
