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. On the disabled list with right shoulder soreness, Burgos has made two rehab starts, one with Wisconsin and one with Brevard County. He's 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in the two starts, going two innings and four innings. Burgos is 1-2 with a 6.44 ERA in six starts with the Brewers this season. Clearing up the closer: Roenicke announced after Friday's game that Jim Henderson would return as the team's closer, and fill-in closer Francisco Rodriguez is alright with the decision. Rodriguez, who is sitting at 299 career saves, feels he's better prepared to handle the shifting around of roles than he was in previous seasons with the Brewers. "You have to make adjustments, definitely," Rodriguez said. "It took me awhile to make it, that's not a question. I'm able to make adjustments and prepare myself and know my role and accept the role that I'm going to be. That will be easier for me doing that. "At this point, I take it day by day and wait for an opportunity. When it comes, don't let it slip away." With Henderson having pitched three straight games, Rodriguez would close Saturday with the chance to notch is 300th save. "I see it right there and then the next day I see it way too far (away)," Rodriguez said. "It's just been really, really close. I'm a believer in whatever is going to happen is going to happen. You just have to be patient and be ready for it. I've been waiting for that moment for so long for me not to take it. To let it get away would be painful. "Just be patient. I've been waiting for a year and a half. I can wait one more day, one more week. I don't think it is going to hurt me." Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter
