Brewers activate RHP Bush to start against Reds

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have activated right-hander Dave Bush from the 15-day disabled list after he missed more than two months with a slight tear in his triceps muscle.

Bush will start Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Reds.

Bush was hit by a line drive in his pitching arm June 4 but made three more starts before being placed on the disabled list with arm fatigue. A further examination revealed a micro tear of the muscle.

He attempted to return in mid-July but again felt arm fatigue after two minor league rehab starts. He made two more successful rehab starts this month.

To make room for Bush, the Brewers sent right-hander Mike Burns to Triple-A Nashville.
