Well the Brewers have finally made the move to put Shaum Marcum on the DL, but they're prefacing it with a "don't panic." Saying it's mostly to make room on the roster for Travis Ishikawa, who's himself returning from the DL, the Brewers moved Marcum, retroactive to June 15. Marcum has had Tommy John surgery on the elbow that is experiencing tightness and the Brewers are predictably quiet about th...

Shaun Marcum was scratched from his next start - Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays - because of elbow tightness. Marcum's delivery is one that many have said is unconventional and not one that can sustain long-term in the majors, so Brewers fans are more than a little nervous that they'll hear the dread "Tommy John" words. Marcum fell off considerably in September and the postseaon last year an...

Heading into the start of play today, the Brewers projected five starting pitchers - Zach Greinke, Yovanni Gallardo, Shaun Marcum, Chris Narveson and Randy Wolf - had a combined Spring Training ERA of 2.43. Not bad, folks, not bad. Marcum, who had been benched until yesterday with shoulder issues/soreness, made his debut yesterday, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out three over thr...

Well it looks like all those stories on Wednesday were for naught, because Zach Greinke has apparently convinced manager Ron Roenicke that he'll be ok to pitch on Sunday, despite throwing 75 pitches in Wednesday's game. Roenicke had said earlier today that it would be up to Greinke to show Roenicke that he was physically able to do it and convince Roenicke to let him pitch on the short rest. While...

The Brewers' magic number to clinch home-field advantage and the #2 seed in the playoffs is 2. Any combination of Brewers wins and Diamondbacks losses that equals two will give the Brewers the #2 seed in the playoffs and home-field advantage. But, because the Braves and Cardinals are fighting for the NL Wild Card, the Brewers won't know who their opponent will be, even if they do clinch home-field...

It's being reported that the Brewers will be sending their #1 prospect to Toronto for starting pitcher Shaun Marcum. Marcum was 13-8 with a 3.64 earned run average in 31 starts last season. He was a middling 87-90 MPH fast ball and relies on an above average changeup as well as serviceble slider and curveball to finesse batters, not over-power them. He averaged 7.3 K/9 innings in 2010.
