Milwaukee right-hander Shaun Marcum was iffy for Wednesday's start against the Rays, but checked out fine on Tuesday. Well, that didn't last long. For the second consecutive start, Marcum has left early with a hip injury. This time he left after three innings, allowing two hits and two runs on a Kelly Shoppach home run. He left the game tied at 2.
It's hard to see how Marcum won't be headed to the disabled list after leaving two games early with the same injury. It's just another injury to a contender in baseball's most injured division, the National League Central. Just the other day, CBSSports.com senior writer Danny Knobler looked at the injury history of the division this season and noted the division will likely be decided as much by who isn't on the field as who is on it.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
