With Zack Greinke set to make his Brewers debut on Wednesday, the club’s rotation for next week is taking shape.
Right-hander Yovani Gallardo will open the three-game series in Atlanta starting on Monday. Right-hander Marco Estrada pitches Tuesday and the right-handed Greinke pitches on Wednesday, five days after the last of his three rehab assignments for Triple-A Nashville.
“Having to do that with Yov now sets him up for the next time he goes will be on five days,” said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke.
ight-hander Shaun Marcum, who earned the win on Friday against the Astros with seven shutout innings, will start on Thursday at Atlanta, five days between starts.
“Somebody has to and this is the least amount of movement,” said Roenicke.
