Brewers' Alfredo Figaro making a case for starter's role

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.
