by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com (2:35 am ET) Brewers starting pitcher Hiram Burgos (shoulder) made his second rehab start Tuesday night for Class A Brevard County.
Burgos, who is working his way back from right shoulder impingement, pitched scoreless innings before surrendering two runs on four hits in the fourth for his only damage of the night. He yielded two runs on five hits while striking out four in four innings.
He is scheduled to make one more rehab assignment before manager Ron Roenicke decides to bring him back to the majors or option him down to Triple-A.
"It's certainly simpler," Roenicke said. "If we bring somebody up, we've got to make a move, we've got to send somebody out. That's what we're trying to avoid doing."
