Shaun MarcumThe Brewers have placed right-hander Shaun Marcum on the bereavement list.

Marcum, 29, is leaving the club to be with his father, who is having heart surgery.

The team has called up right-handed reliever Mike McClendon from Triple-A Nashville to take his place on the roster. McClendon has appeared in three games for the Sounds, allowing four hits and no runs in 6 1/3 innings. He's struck out four and walked one.

Marcum started on Monday, so he could easily return by Sunday, which would be his next turn in the rotation with Thursday's off day for the Brewers. Marcum allowed five hits and an unearned run in a no-decision in Milwaukee's 12-inning victory over the Phillies.

Players on the bereavement list must miss a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven.

Sometimes the game itself seems insignificant, when "life" gets in the way.

Good luck to your father; good luck to you, Shaun and hope/prayers for your family.
