Shaun Marcum is set to make his first Minor League rehab appearance on Thursday for Class A Wisconsin. The outing will mark his first live game since June 14, as he's been sidelined with a tight right elbow. The Brewers also announced that Marcum will make a second rehab start next Wednesday against Beloit.
After going with a platoon in center field for much of the season, Roenicke said Carlos Gomez will continue to receive the majority of the starts at that position. Gomez, who sometimes struggles with plate discipline, entered Wednesday batting .300 with 10 RBIs and four home runs in his last 21 games.
"His at-bats, overall, definitely are better," Roenicke said. "We know he can play good defense. If he gets on base, he's going to steal. It really comes down to the at-bats. Everything else is good with his game. When he's hitting well, he's great to have in the lineup."
