Making his second start since returning from the injured list, Megill played three shutout innings on Thursday before Christian Yelich homered for the Brewers leading fourth. Milwaukee then loaded the bases with one strikeout and Megill flinched right after his first pitch. Omar Narvaez.

It was Megill’s 28th hard inning inning, and the fastball hit 92 mph – far short of the 97 mph it had shown on the radar earlier in the game. He called the sports coach and was replaced Chasen Shreve.

Megill spent four weeks on IL from May 12 to June 9 due to inflammation in his right bicep. He made one minor league rehab start and returned to the rotation last Friday with the Los Angeles Angels, allowing two runs and five hits on 64 fields in 3 1/3 innings.

Megill was 4-1 with a 2.43 ERA before getting tagged eight runs and eight hits in 1 1/3 innings on May 11 in Washington. He was put on Il after that sortie.
