Cautious course set for Narveson, Peralta


PHOENIX -- Left-hander Chris Narveson was scheduled to throw live batting practice on Saturday as the Brewers continue to progress him cautiously post-shoulder surgery. Narveson has reported feeling great in camp, but manager Ron Roenicke and pitching coach Rick Kranitz are taking no chances, especially considering the extended length of this year's camp.

The same goes for right-hander Wily Peralta, who had a bit of stiffness after his first Arizona bullpen session.

"Because of when we're starting right now, they're not behind," Roenicke said. "Peralta or 'Narvy,' whenever they throw in a game, they'll still be to their 95 pitches when we start the season."

This year's Spring Training is longer than usual because of the World Baseball Classic.
