Shaun Marcum headed to Brewers

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Milwaukee Brewers boosted their rotation Monday, reaching a deal to get right-hander Shaun Marcum from the Toronto Blue Jays for infield prospect Brett Lawrie.

"We feel better about our pitching today than we did yesterday," Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said.

Marcum started for the Blue Jays on opening day last season and went 13-8 with a 3.64 ERA, a year after missing the entire 2009 season following Tommy John surgery. He turns 29 next week.

Marcum was especially attractive to the Brewers because he comes with a relatively low salary -- he made $850,000 last season -- and isn't eligible for free agency for two more years.

Definite upgrade for our rotation, which was easily the worst part of our team last year.
