After being bumped to the bullpen following the addition of Kyle Lohse, now Chris Narveson is headed to the disabled list.

The Brewers just announced that Narveson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left middle finger. The injury caused him to be unavailable yesterday against the Diamondbacks, which led to John Axford giving up a go-ahead two-run homer to Eric Hinske after he stayed on for a second inning of relief.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but Adam McCalvy of MLB.com hears that it will be a position player. And that’s much-needed after the Brewers were forced to have Lohse pinch-hit with the game on the line yesterday.

    Gotta be 1B Hunter Morris.

      He’s not on the 40 man so highly unlikely. Scooter Gennnet is more likely.

      He’s not on the 40 man roster so that’d require another move. Scooter Gennett would make sense since he’s already on the 40 man roster. Either way, any move is better than being as short on hitters as they were on Sunday.
