Bush to start Monday as scheduled
This note was somewhat buried in my preview of today’s game, but Dave Bush told us last night that he would start as scheduled on Monday against the Cardinals, a sentiment that manager Ken Macha confirmed Saturday afternoon.
Here’s my note about Bush from last night:
After meeting with the Brewers’ head physician on Friday evening, Dave Bush declared himself fit to make his Monday start against the Cardinals as scheduled. The outing was in doubt after Bush surrendered eight runs in St. Louis on Wednesday — his third start off the disabled list — and complained of lingering soreness in his right triceps.
“I should be good,” Bush said late Friday night. “The doctor said this is all part of the process of [recovering from] a torn muscle. It’s usually a multi-month kind of thing, and … it doesn’t do any good to stop throwing because [the scar tissue] has to break up at some point.”
Bush threw a bullpen session at about 75 percent of full effort on Friday afternoon.
“Before the year is over, I want him to feel good about himself,” Macha said.
