MILWAUKEE (AP) -Brewers ace Ben Sheets will not start Friday against the San Diego Padres and Chris Capuano will take his place.
Sheets threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday, but the right-hander still had discomfort in his left hamstring after straining it against Houston on Sept. 18.
The left-handed Capuano (5-12, 5.09 ERA) also took Sheets' rotation spot Sunday in a 7-4 loss to the Braves. He pitched well, allowing one run in five innings in his first start since being sent to the bullpen after losing 12 straight decisions dating to May 7.
It's not clear whether Sheets (12-5, 3.82 ERA) might be available in any role in Milwaukee's final two games. The Brewers are scheduled to start Dave Bush (12-10, 5.16 ERA) and Jeff Suppan (11-12, 4.57 ERA).
