Marcum to make Class A rehab start Thursday
MILWAUKEE -- Shaun Marcum's long trip back to the mound for the Brewers will continue on Thursday, when he makes his first rehab start for Class A Wisconsin.

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke announced the news on Monday, one day after Marcum threw his first simulated game since being scratched from his scheduled start on June 19 with right elbow tightness. At the time, Roenicke expected Marcum to miss a start or two. But after it took weeks for Marcum to even be able to throw off the mound, he went from the 15-day disabled list on June 23 -- retroactive to June 15 -- to the 60-day disabled list on July 29.

Before the injury, Marcum was 5-3 with a 3.39 ERA in 13 starts, including a three-start winning streak in late May and early June.

Thursday will be Marcum's first game since he allowed two runs in 7 2/3 innings to the Royals on June 14. Roenicke said Marcum will throw 45-50 pitches against Cedar Rapids, and the 30-year-old right-hander said on Sunday that he anticipated needing only two Minor League starts before returning to the Brewers' rotation.

"We're discussing that," Roenicke said. "We have a plan of what he's going to do. We haven't finalized it yet."
