According to Brewers’ manager, Craig Counsell, RHP Corbin Burnes is likely to return from the IL (undisclosed) on Thursday. Burnes threw a bullpen session on Monday but last appeared in the April 26 Marlins contest. It was, by a long shot, his worst performance of the season. In five innings, he surrendered five runs (four earned). His otherwise otherworldly beginning of the season leaves him with a 1.53 ERA and 0.545 WHIP.

LHP Brent Suter returns from the bereavement list today. Suter also had a rough last appearance. He gave up three runs in his first start of the season on May 7’s Marlins’ contest. With the starting rotation returning to health, Suter will likely return to a bullpen role where he enjoys a 2.70 ERA, and 1.14 WHIP.

Utility player Tim Lopes has recovered from an oblique injury sustained during Spring Training. He was placed on the 60-day IL at the time, and won’t be eligible to rejoin the major league club until late May. He’s headed for a Triple-A assignment in Nashville in the meantime.

RHP Bobby Wahl has also been on the 60-day IL with an oblique injury sustained during Spring Training. He’ll need a number of appearances in Double-A and Triple-A before he can return to the Brewers’ bullpen.
