According to the Associated Press, Chris Narveson has avoided arbitration with the Brewers by agreeing to a one-year, $840,000 contract.

Narveson, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, made just two starts last season prior to undergoing surgery in May to repair his labrum and rotator cuff. The 31-year-old southpaw is expected to be ready for spring training, but won’t be assured of a rotation spot with Mark Rogers, Wily Peralta and Tyler Thornburg also competing for jobs. Meanwhile, Yovani Gallardo, Mike Fiers and Marco Estrada are pretty close to locks.

Narveson had a 4.73 ERA in 56 starts and 11 relief appearances with the Brewers between 2010-2011.
