Marcum not sure on timetable for return
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers right-hander Shaun Marcum still doesn't know when he might be back on the mound for a game or even a bullpen session, but he expected to have a better idea by the end of the day on Thursday.

Marcum was scheduled to play catch on Thursday for the first time in about five days. He's been out of action since June 19, when he was scratched from his start against the Blue Jays with right elbow tightness. Mike Fiers made his third start in Marcum's spot -- his seventh of the season -- on Thursday against the Marlins.

In 13 starts before the injury, Marcum was 5-3 with a 3.39 ERA. Since being scratched, he said he hasn't been able to do much other than work out without throwing.

"There's still some tenderness in there," he said of the elbow. "It just depends on the day. A lot of that I think is due to workouts and stuff, working everything and keeping everything strong."

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said on Tuesday "there's a chance" Marcum might not be back immediately after the All-Star break. When asked on Thursday if Marcum would be back in July at all, Roenicke said he didn't know.

"It's hard to guess now where he's going to show up," Roenicke said.
