Brewers Pitcher Dave Bush Will Not Be Back Before The All-Star Break

Logan SchellContributor IJuly 3, 2009

Brewers manager Ken Macha said this morning that fifth starter Dave Bush will not be able to make a start before the All-Star break.

Bush is on the disabled list for the first time in his career with micro-tears in his right rotator cup. Bush could come back on Monday but instead will make a rehabilitation start in Double-A Huntsville on July 15th.

"I'm trying to find the delicate balance between letting it rest and also finding out how it feels," Bush said. "I have to use a certain amount of effort to determine just to see if I feel good enough. I moved a little further back today and put a little more effort into it. I feel good."

Bush also added that he's "feeling a little anxious."

Before Bush went on the disabled list, he was 4-5 with a 5.67 ERA.
