MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Marco Estrada will make a rehab start for Single-A Wisconsin on Sunday, as he works his way back from a left hamstring strain.
Estrada was given the go-ahead to head out and pitch after a checkup with team physician Dr. William Raasch following a bullpen session Friday. The Brewers hope Estrada needs just one rehab start before returning to Milwaukee.
"The plan is he goes out tomorrow and pitches, and then we do need a spot starter or a guy that at least goes back in the rotation probably the 28th or 29th," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.
There's a possibility it could be Estrada starting when the Brewers need a starter next weekend in Pittsburgh.
"We'll see how it goes," Roenicke said. "If he still feels it in his leg, then maybe we'll have to go another one."
Burgos transferred: The rehab assignment of right-hander Hiram Burgos has been transferred from Single-A advanced Brevard County to Triple-A Nashville.
