• Right-hander Marco Estrada threw 34 pitches in a successful start for Rookie-level Arizona on Monday, the first of at least three Minor League rehabilitation appearances before the Brewers consider reinstating him from the disabled list. Assuming no setbacks, Estrada will start again Friday on three days' rest, though assistant general manager Gord Ash said the club was still considering where to send him.
"I think two more starts would be the minimum, and I think if we go a fourth [rehab] start, it would be either because we need him extended or he just needs to pitch better," Roenicke said.
• Another injured right-hander, Hiram Burgos, remains shut down with a shoulder injury, but Ash said no surgery was being contemplated at this time.
