Manager Ron Roenicke is not ready to commit to Narveson as a starter. In fact, he would like to see more out of him in the minors. He is 0-2 with an 8.31 ERA in four minor-league rehab starts.

"I don't want to say that," Roenicke said Tuesday. "We'll see what happens."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chris Narveson will throw 30 pitches in rehab start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2013) Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson, who has been on the disabled list since April 8 with a sprained ligament in his left middle finger, is scheduled to throw 30 pitches in his first rehab start Thursday at Triple-A Nashville.

Narveson, who will be stretched out as a starter, will throw 45 pitches in his second start and 60 in his third. He told The Miwaukee Journal Sentinel he hopes to join the rotation by the middle of June.

"We're playing it by ear," Narveson said. "The plan right now is for four (rehab starts). If I do four, I'll throw 75 or 80 and then I'll be ready the next time for a full 100."

Chris Narveson to work as starter in rehab


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2013) Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson will be stretched out as a starter when he begins his minor-league rehab assignment Thursday at Triple-A Nashville. Narveson, who has been on the disabled list since April with a sprained ligament in his left middle finger, began the season as a reliever, but prefers starting.

"Definitely,” Narveson told MLB.com. "That's what [I] want to do, but you also want to help the team win any way you can."

Narveson faced live hitters Friday in batting practice, the same day the Brewers placed starter Hiram Burgos on the disabled list. It is not clear whether he will have a spot available for him in the rotation when he returns, but his presence will give the team another option.

Narveson has pitched just 11 innings over the last two seasons, as he underwent surgery on his pitching shoulder early in 2012. 


Chris Narveson making progress


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2013) Brewers reliever Chris Narveson threw a bullpen session Tuesday, as he continues to make progress in his recovery from a middle-finger sprain. If Narveson makes it through the next few days without a setback, he could face live hitters Friday in batting practice, according to MLB.com.

"The finger felt good. Just kind of taking it day by day and see how it goes Friday against hitters," Narveson said. "You're just trying to prepare yourself and get your body ready to pitch again. I think you expect yourself to hit the ground running once you come back."

Narveson has been on the disabled list April 8 with the injury, but is clearly making progress. If all goes well with his batting practice session Friday, he could begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Nashville shortly after. 


Chris Narveson completes bullpen session


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2013) Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson, on the 15-day disabled list, completed a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday as he continues to work his way back from a sprained middle finger.

"I really haven't thought about it that much, other than trying to figure out our starters and where we're going with them," manager Ron Roenicke said. "Hopefully, we continue to get better in that area. If we don't we need to make some changes to our starting rotation. … I'm kind of 'one step at a time' with [Narveson]. When he's ready to go, then we'll see where we are with the rotation."

Narveson will throw another bullpen session during the upcoming homestand, which starts Monday against the Dodgers. Barring any setbacks, he will throw a simulated game before starting his rehab assignment.

"He did that three days ago," manager Ron Roenicke said Wednesday. "I think we will have a few of those with him, and then get him some live hitters."

The left-hander has been sidelined since early April due to an injured middle finger.

Chris Narveson to miss 4-6 weeks


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2013) Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson will miss 4-6 weeks with a sprained middle finger, MLB.com reports. He was placed on the disabled list Monday.

The left-hander missed most of last season after shoulder surgery and had been working in long relief for Milwaukee to ease his shoulder back into action.

“That was the thing, it was just getting to the point where you’re getting comfortable, getting ramped up,” Narveson said. “And the next thing you know, something like that happens. Who knows? Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. It kind of gives you a little bit of a rest.”

Chris Narveson placed on DL


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Chris Narveson dealing with injured finger


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson is dealing with a finger injury in his throwing hand that has prevented him from pitching in Sunday's extra-innings affair against the Diamondbacks.

Chris Narveson to begin in bullpen


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2013) With Chris Narveson coming back from last season's shoulder surgery, the Brewers have decided to push him to the bullpen and have Mike Fiers begin the season in the rotation.

Narveson, who was scheduled to start Saturday's exhibition finale before entering the rotation, will now work as a long reliever early in the season. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke stressed that Narveson has not had a setback, but the team will simply limit his innings to begin the season.

“He’s OK, but he’s been really pushing through this thing in Spring Training, through the surgery,” Roenicke told MLB.com. “In the long run, it’s probably going to help him to limit his innings at the start.”

Narveson has a 5.50 ERA in 18 Cactus League innings. He is expected to piggyback recently-signed starter Kyle Lohse in his first outing, and the team seems to think he can return to the rotation at some point down the line.  


Chris Narveson losing rotation spot?


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
