Chris Narveson injury: Brewers LHP to DL with sprained finger

The Brewers have placed left-hander Chris Narveson on the disabled list with a sprained finger on his throwing hand.

The Milwaukee Brewers have placed left-hander Chris Narveson on the disabled list with a sprained finger on his throwing hand, the team has announced.

More Brewers: Narveson to DL

The injured finger is the middle finger on his left hand, and it was sustained when Narveson was warming up in the bullpen during Saturday's contest. The southpaw wasn't available on Sunday, and Milwaukee transferred him to the 15-day disabled list yesterday.

Narveson lost his spot in the Brewers' starting rotation when the team signed free agent Kyle Lohse. Over parts of six seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals and Brewers, the 31-year-old owns a career ERA of 4.65 with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 2.17. He started 28 games for Milwaukee during the 2010-11 seasons, but he was limited to two appearances last year.

To replace Narveson on their roster, the Brewers were expected to call up a position player rather than another pitcher. They wound up doing just that, as Milwaukee purchased the contract of utility player Blake Lalli from Triple-A. He was the final position player cut by the Brewers this spring, and he had a strong showing during the exhibition season.
