Shoulder Still Affecting Marcum

"For the second consecutive spring training, right-hander Shaun Marcum is falling behind in the Milwaukee Brewers' spring camp because of shoulder soreness.

Originally, Marcum was not expected to be set back much by the soreness he began experiencing last week. He was penciled in to make his first spring start Saturday, giving him plenty of time to get ready for the regular season.

But, after experiencing soreness while playing catch Sunday and again Monday morning, Marcum was examined by team physician WilliamRaasch and scratched from his first scheduled exhibition outing. Manager Ron Roenicke said Marcum would be shut down for two or three days, making it likely that he was given a cortisone injection to calm down the inflammation."
