Suppan to pitch Sunday

Brewers right-hander Jeff Suppan is scheduled to pitch an intrasquad game at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix on Sunday and will then travel to Milwaukee for the team’s season opener against the Rockies on Monday afternoon. Suppan is beginning the 15-day disabled list with a neck injury. 
Where his rehabilitation takes him after Monday remains to be seen, according to Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash. 
“We’ll see how he is after [Sunday’s outing],” Ash said. “Rick [Peterson, Milwaukee’s pitching coach] will give us some input on what he sees and hears and we will go from there.”
Suppan is eligible to return from the disabled list on April 10. The Brewers don’t plan to use a fifth starter until April 14 or 15 in Chicago.
