Found December 31, 2012 on MLB Injury News:
The Milwaukee Brewers have one lock in their starting rotation, Yovani Gallardo. Last season, Chris Narveson would have - and was - considered a lock. Unfortunately, he underwent season-ending shoulder surgery after just two starts in 2012. But he'll be back and ready to compete for a job in 2013. According to Adam McCalvy of, Narveson will compete for one of the four starting pitching slots behind Gallardo. He will likely earn one of them, but it should be a good contest as long as he is fully healthy. "For Narveson, the question is health. He had surgery May 1 to repair the labrum and rotator cuff in his left shoulder, but was throwing off a mound before the end of the season and is expected to be back to 100 percent well before the start of Spring Training."Narveson is a five-year MLB veteran. He is one of the few guys on the Brewers' roster who has started enough games to be considered experienced. In his career, Narveson is 26-18 with a 4.67 ERA. He became a full-time starter in 2010 after spending the early part of his career in the bullpen. The Brewers could use some stability at starting pitcher after a rough 2012. Milwaukee burned through 11 different starters due to injury during the season. Narveson appears healthy, but we won't know for sure until he competes in the Spring.

The Milwaukee Brewers have done an OK job bringing on reinforcements for their faulty bullpen.  Things were looking pretty bleak before GM Melvin (and by extension, ownership) signed lefty relievers Tom Gorzelanny and Mike Gonzalez.  Personally, I’m feeling better about the pen now, for sure...
