Milwaukee Brewers right hander Shaun Marcum will miss his schedule start tonight in game 2 of their series with the Toronto Blue Jays at Miller Park.
Marcum is plagued by elbow tightness. The Brewers will call up a pitcher from the minors later today.
Marcum had won three straight starts before a no-decision in Kansas City last week. He’s 5-3 on the season with a 3.39 ERA in 13 starts.
By missing the start tonight, Marcum will miss a chance to pitch against his former team. Toronto traded Marcum to the Brewers for Brett Lawrie.
