MILWAUKEE (AP) -Brewers right-hander Ben Sheets is expected to make his next scheduled start after having an MRI exam on his strained right groin muscle Thursday.
Sheets left Wednesday's game against the Chicago Cubs in the bottom of the third inning after reaching down to tag out Ryan Theriot at third base.
The Brewers said Sheets visited team physician Dr. William Raasch in Milwaukee on Thursday and underwent an MRI, which confirmed a strained right groin. Sheets underwent treatment and is expected to rejoin the team Friday in Houston.
He is listed as probable for his next start against St. Louis at Miller Park on Tuesday.
Sheets has made only 39 starts over the past two seasons because of nagging shoulder and back injuries.
Sheets gave up four hits and no runs on a damp, 44-degree day at Wrigley Field before leaving the game and has now gone four starts without a victory. His lone win came in the April 2 season opener when he threw a two-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
