Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Shaun Marcum said he does not expect to miss his first start of the regular season.
Marcum pitched for the first time this spring in a minor league game after originally being set back by shoulder inflammation. Marcum went two-innings, allowing one hit, a home run, with no walks and two strikeouts.
Marcum said he expected to make his first regular-season start against the Cubs in Chicago April 9th or 10th.
Outfielder Corey Hart was making his return from knee surgery, but he hurt himself again on Tuesday.
Hart needed 8 stitches to close a cut on his head after a weight-room accident. Hart was working out on a weight machine when an overhead metal bar snapped back and whacked him on the head.
Hart missed most of training camp last spring with a strained oblique that forced him to go on the DL at the start of the season.
