Estrada's side session pushed back a day

PHOENIX -- Starting pitcher Marco Estrada was scheduled to throw a bullpen session off flat ground Saturday but it was moved to Sunday. Estrada is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring but is also dealing with back problems, and the right-hander said he isn't yet 100 percent.

Estrada's next step in his recovery will be to throw live batting practice, then make at least three Minor League starts. So he isn't expected to be available for another 20 days, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.

Pitcher Alfredo Figaro threw his bullpen session Saturday and will pitch in games at the club's complex in Maryvale, Ariz., in coming days.
