Brewers: A decision on Sheets coming soon

The Brewers are still struggling with making a decision on whether or not to place their ace pitcher Ben Sheets on the disabled list. Sheets is recovering from vestibular neuritis, the same inner-ear ailment that sidelined him briefly last June. Wes Obermueller, who has served as a middle reliever for the Brewers, would go in the rotation in Sheets' place, and he is tentatively scheduled to start Saturday against Cincinnati, the next time Sheets' rotation spot comes up. Obermueller has been more effective as a starter than a reliever over the course of his career, but not enough to warrant fantasy consideration. Sheets owners will have to look elsewhere for their temporary stop gap should the ace be forced to the DL.
