The road to recovery is starting to become clearer for one of the injured Brewers.
Right-hander Marco Estrada, who has been on the disabled list since May 24 with a strained right quad, threw off the mound prior to Sunday's game against San Diego and will move forward with plans to throw a simulated game on Tuesday in Kansas City.
If all goes well, Estrada will throw one more bullpen session Thursday before starting a rehab assignment next weekend.
"He's doing pretty good," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "He still can't run 100 percent. (During) bullpens he doesn't feel it at all."
Estrada also took ground balls and covered first base off the mound, which still is slightly bothering the quad.
The Brewers may send Estrada to make his rehab starts in Single A so he wouldn't have to hit or run the bases.
Roenicke made it clear that whenever Estrada is ready to return, he will reclaim his spot in the rotation from rookie right-hander Michael Fiers.
It will likely take at leas...
