Narveson throws, feels no pain in left thumb
MILWAUKEE -- Left-hander Chris Narveson reported feeling no pain on Saturday while playing catch for the first time since slicing his left thumb with a pair of scissors, which caused him to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Team physician Dr. William Raasch instructed Narveson to bandage up the injured left thumb and try throwing.

"It actually wasn't too bad," Narveson said. "I had a protective little covering over it. I played catch, I didn't really do anything crazy. It was a way to exercise the arm and keep in shape."

Narveson hopes to come off the disabled list in time to pitch during a doubleheader at Pittsburgh on Aug. 22.

"I think we're still on track," he said. "It's just a matter of taking it day by day."
