The Brewers offered a timeline on Wednesday for the return of right-hander Ben Sheets, who is on the disabled list with a right middle finger injury.
According to Ash, who handles the club's medical issues, Sheets will throw one more bullpen session during the Brewers' current homestand. He is then expected to pitch in a simulated game at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix next Monday or Tuesday when the Brewers are in Arizona to play the Diamondbacks.
If that goes well, Ash said Sheets would make one Minor League rehab start before re-joining the Brewers in early September.
"If everything goes well," Ash admitted, "that's our hope at this point."http://www.madison.com/tct/sports/205766
