Burgos gets back on track with rehab start in Nashville

MILWAUKEE - Brewers right-hander Hiram Burgos made a rehab start on Sunday at Triple-A Nashville. Burgos, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 24 with a right shoulder impingement, started the Nashville Sounds' 2 p.m. ET game against the New Orleans Zephyrs.

"He'll be stretched out," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "Triple-A staff, they're going to have a nice staff. With [Johnny] Hellweg, [Jimmy] Nelson, [Tyler] Thornburg. Too bad [Mike] Fiers is out, but [Chris] Narveson and Burgos. That's a pretty good staff."

Roenicke hopes the Brewers' starting staff will take shape soon with the return of Burgos and Marco Estrada, who is making a rehab start for Class A Wisconsin on Sunday. Relievers Donovan Hand and Alfredo Figaro started the final two games of Milwaukee's series against the Braves on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
