Narveson's season may be over after Triple-A injury

MILWAUKEE -- Left-hander Chris Narveson will be placed on Triple-A Nashville's disabled list Thursday with a nerve issue near his throwing shoulder, Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said.

The injury could end Narveson's season -- the Sounds' final game is Sept. 2 -- and Narveson's tenure with the Brewers, since he will be a six-year Minor League free agent at season's end. Narveson has been with the Brewers since signing a Minor League deal with the team in December 2007, and was 26-18 with a 4.65 ERA in 92 Brewers appearances, 62 starts.

Ash described the issue as a "scap nerve entrapment" and said Narveson was already receiving treatment.

Narveson's latest setback comes amid a trying two-year period for the 31-year-old, who missed most of last season after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum and rotator cuff in his shoulder. He made the Brewers' 2013 Opening Day roster as a reliever, a move to limit his innings early in the year, but was returned to the disabled list after a week and never returned to the Majors.

He was 4-7 with a 5.14 ERA in 15 Triple-A starts before being scratched from a scheduled outing on Saturday.
