Marcum says he’ll stay on schedule
Brewers starter Shaun Marcum said he felt immediate relief from a strained neck Monday after visiting a Phoenix-area chiropractor, and was planning to make his next start on schedule.
Marcum was hurt in the fifth inning of Sunday’s win at Colorado, when he slid to the third-base side of the pitcher’s mound to field a bunt. Marcum made a tumbling throw to first base for the inning-ending out, then returned for the bottom of the sixth inning before making an early exit.
Marcum will test his neck in a bullpen session Tuesday and is scheduled to start Friday in San Francisco.
“We had an adjustment, and should be good to go now,” Marcum said. “As soon as he did it, it was like, holy [cow], that felt good.”
