MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson will open the season as the team's long reliever and not in the starting rotation. Narveson is recovering from shoulder surgery and a torn rotator cuff that cut his 2012 season to just one start. "We want to back off him a little bit," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. " ... He's OK but he's really been pushing through this thing in spring training." That means both Mike Fiers and Wily Peralta will open the season in Milwaukee's rotation, along with Yovani Gallardo, Kyle Lohse and Marco Estrada. Because Lohse is just working his way into the groove after signing with the Brewers on Monday, Roenicke said Narveson could piggy-back off of Lohse for the first few weeks. "In the long run it's probably going to help him out to limit his innings," Roenicke said. The Brewers have announced Gallardo, Estrada and Peralta will start the first three games of the season against Colo...

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers left-hander Chris Narveson is fully on board with the team's decision to move him to the bullpen instead of beginning the season in the team's starting rotation. Narveson was limited to just one start last season because of a torn rotator cuff, and he doesn't want to overdo things early in the season. "I'm not reading too much into it,...

A's claim Brewers' Stinson off waivers

That One Time The Brewers Beat Adam Wainwright With Two Hits

(Photo: Mike Ehrmann) Adam Wainwright has not been generous to the Brewers over the years.  Among current players with a fair number of at bats against Wainwright, only Aramis Ramirez (.404) and Corey Hart (.265) hit him respectably.  Although I could not find Wainwright’s career numbers versus the Brewers overall (apparently I need to be a STATS LLC client for that) I was...
