"We've got a couple different things we may do [with that spot]," manager Craig Counsell said. "We'll see how it goes. We're just going to be a little flexible going forward with how we'll use guys."
One candidate to make some of the remaining five or so starts from the No.5 slot is right-hander Zach Davies, a right-hander acquired on July 31 from the Orioles in the Gerardo Parra trade.
Cravy, meanwhile, will try to get healthy enough to join the bullpen. He was 0-3 with a 10.50 ERA in three August starts before the Brewers placed him on the DL on Aug. 19 with a right elbow impingement. He is eligible for reinstatement beginning Sept. 3. If all goes well, Counsell said, Cravy should be back soon after that date.
