According to Brewers.com, Dave Bush is starting on Sunday in the place of Vargas. So there's no need to worry...yet. I've kept Bush all season, and I don't intend to drop him now.
After Capuano passed his test, Brewers manager Ned Yost lined up his starting rotation through the All-Star break. Yovani Gallardo will start Friday's series opener against the Cubs, then will report for bullpen duty until further notice. Ben Sheets will start Saturday in Chicago and Yost named Dave Bush to start Sunday over Claudio Vargas.
In Pittsburgh, beginning July 2, it will be Jeff Suppan followed by Capuano, Vargas and Sheets. Bush, Suppan and Capuano will then pitch in Washington as the Brewers finish the first half.
"We'll kind of re-evaluate things at the break," Yost said.
The most pressing question seems to be what to do with Gallardo. He pitched well in both of his starts since a promotion from Triple-A Nashville, but Yost believes that some time in the bullpen could help keep Gallardo's 21-year-old arm fresh for August and September.
"There's a lot of guys doing a great job right now," Capuano said. "Having too many guys for a limited number of starts, that's a great thing. If we have six guys for five spots all year, I think everybody is going to be pretty happy."
