Alfredo Figaro is making it awfully hard on his manager.
With Marco Estrada soon to return from the disabled list and Chris Narveson and Hiram Burgos out on rehab assignments, it seemed only a matter of time before Figaro returned to the bullpen.
But Figaro isn't going to go quietly. The right-hander tossed seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits for his first major league win since Sept. 26, 2009, leading the Brewers to a 10-1 victory over Miami.
"Figgy was real good today," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "Fastball command right off (the bat). Off-speed pitches were over the plate. He started off (well) and threw great."
Making just his seventh career start, Figaro didn't walk a batter and needed just 88 pitches to get through seven innings, the longest outing of his career. After Ed Lucas singled in the first inning, Figaro retired 17 Marlins in a row before Lucas singled to lead off the seventh.
