Marcum to make one more Class A rehab start
MILWAUKEE -- After more than two months out of the Brewers rotation because of right elbow tightness, Shaun Marcum will have to wait a little bit longer for his official return to the team.

Following a bullpen session on Friday at Miller Park, Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said it was decided the 30-year-old right-hander needs one more rehab start for Class A Wisconsin before coming back. It will be his third appearance for the Timber Rattlers as he works his way toward pitching for the Brewers for the first time since June 14.

Physically, Roenicke said everything is fine, but all parties were in agreement with the decision.

"Really, when you think about it, Shaun wants to be back here pitching, but he was out for a long time, and to really only give him two rehab starts, probably not the best way to do it," Roenicke said. "I think after talking with Shaun, I think he realized that it probably is better to go for one more."

In the meantime, the rotation will remain unchanged. Roenicke said Marcum, who allowed two earned runs in 3 2/3 innings on Wednesday, should throw about 75 pitches in what is expected to be his last rehab start.
