According to the Japan Times his deal is worth $850,000 for one season and the 33-year-old left-hander can also earn further incentives. Narveson totaled just…

    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.

    After signing Kyle Lohse to a three-year, $33 million deal earlier this week, the Brewers suddenly have more starting pitchers than rotation spots. While early indications were that Mike Fiers would be the odd man out, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Chris Narveson will begin the season in the bullpen. Narveson is coming off…

    Milwaukee Brewers v Colorado Rockies

    There’s no official word yet on who the Brewers will bump from the starting rotation to make room for Kyle Lohse, but Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that it’s expected to be right-hander Mike Fiers. That speaks pretty highly of the Brewers’ rotation depth because Fiers was damn good as a 27-year-old…

    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…

    Chris Narveson, who underwent season-ending shoulder surgery two starts into 2012, “is expected to be back to 100 percent well before the start of spring training,” according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. However, as it stands now he wouldn’t be assured of a spot in the Brewers’ rotation with Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada, Mike Fiers,…

    Apparently, Ken Rosenthal, Buster Olney and all of the rest just got scooped by Bill Hall.

  11. Brewers may turn to Manny Parra as rotation replacement

    May 25, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Milwaukee will be without Marco Estrada for at least 3-4 starts because a quadriceps strain and he was only in the rotation to begin with as an injury replacement for Chris Narveson, so the Brewers are running short on starters. Instead of dipping down into the minors for help manager Ron Roenicke indicated that he’ll…

  12. Marco Estrada expected to miss 3-4 starts for Brewers

    May 24, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Milwaukee Brewers

    Marco Estrada‘s first-inning double yesterday extended the Brewers’ lead to 6-0, but the Milwaukee starter couldn’t stick around to benefit from the run support because he suffered a quadriceps injury on the play and immediately exited the game. Estrada has been diagnosed with a strained quadriceps–not a hip injury, as initially reported–and general manager Doug…

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun followed up his monster three-homer game Monday by swiping his 100th career base Tuesday, but in doing so he injured his Achilles’ tendon.

  14. Chris Narveson to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery

    Apr 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Last week Chris Narveson was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff and today the Brewers left-hander announced that he’ll undergo season-ending surgery after a second opinion confirmed the initial findings. Milwaukee has the rotation depth to withstand the loss of Narveson, but he’s been a solid fourth or fifth starter for the past two-plus seasons…

    Apr 20, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Chris Narveson struggled in his last start Sunday, allowing five runs in four innings against the Braves, and today the Brewers placed the left-hander on the disabled list with a torn rotator cuff.

  16. Running down the rosters: Milwaukee Brewers

    With Prince Fielder‘s departure assured, the last thing the 2011 NL Central champion Brewers needed was to lose Ryan Braun for a third of the season. It’s likely to happen, though, even if his appeal is still pending. The rotation should be strong enough to keep the Brewers in the race while Braun is out,…
