 CHICAGO (AP) -The Milwaukee Brewers will bring ace right-hander Ben Sheets off the disabled list Wednesday to start against the Chicago Cubs.
Sheets, on the DL since July 16 with a sprained middle finger on his right hand and bothered by blisters, threw in the outfield before Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Cubs.
``He was fine,'' said manager Ned Yost, who announced after the game Sheets would start Wednesday.
Sheets is 10-4 with a 3.39 ERA in 19 starts this season. He missed 40 games and Milwaukee went 14-26 while he was on the DL, falling out of first place in the NL Central.
``It provides a little stability for your club. Having your No. 1 guy back out there helps,'' Yost said.
Milwaukee also placed right-hander Claudio Vargas on the disabled list because of a strained lower back. He lasted just two-thirds of an inning in his last start against the Giants, giving up six runs and five hits with a walk and hit batter.
Vargas is 10-4 with a 5.13 ERA in 25 games, including 23 starts.
