Milwaukee Brewers SP Chris Narveson (finger) made the first of four scheduled minor league rehab starts Thursday, May 30, in Nashville as he continues on the road back to Milwaukee. Narveson threw two scoreless innings for the Sounds against the Iowa Cubs. He gave up one hit and struck out one, and he threw 22 pitches, 12 for strikes, on a night where his pitch count was expected to be capped at 30. His next outing will most likely come Tuesday, June 4, at Round Rock.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Chris Narveson (finger) will make his first minor-league rehab start Thursday, May 30, for Triple-A Nashville. It is very tentative, but Narveson is expected to need four rehab starts before the team considers activating him from the 15-day disabled list. That would allow him time to work back up to the 75-80 pitch mark.

The Milwaukee Brewers have placed SP Chris Narveson (finger) on the 15-day disabled list. It's unknown who will be recalled from the minors to take his spot on the roster.

The Milwaukee Brewers announced that SP Mike Fiers has made the rotation, and SP Chris Narveson (shoulder) will begin in the bullpen. There is concern with Narveson's surgically repaired left shoulder, although manager Ron Roenicke said he is fine. "We want to back off him a little bit," Roenicke said. "He's OK, but he's really been pushing through this thing in spring training, through the surgery. In the long run, it's probably going to help him out to limit his innings at the start." Narveson went 1-2 with a 5.50 ERA in five starts and 18 spring innings while striking out 10 and walking six. Narveson will piggyback SP Kyle Lohse in Lohse's first start of the regular season, which will likely come in the second series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Fiers has promise even though he ran out of gas at the tail end of last season. He can neutralize left-handed sticks and is worth consideration in deep enough mixed leagues to round out your pitching staff.

Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse will make $4 million this year with $7 million deferred to 2016-2018, plus $11 million in each of the 2014 and 2015 seasons. He can make an extra $1.05 million in performance bonuses; $350,000 each for the three seasons that he tops 190 innings. The team is already set in their rotation with SPs Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada, Wily Peralta, Chris Narveson and Mike Fiers. They may choose to carry Lohse as part of their 13-man staff to begin the year, and Lohse said he should be game-ready shortly. Fiers and Peralta have minor league options left, so they are the most likely to be bumped from the rotation to make room for Lohse when he's ready. Both young pitchers have struggled this spring, too.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Lohse has a team to pitch for, he's definitely worthy of a draft pick in all formats. He has excellent control, but isn't as dominant as 2012 suggests. He also has struggled in his career at Miller Park, confines not as friendly to hurlers as his old digs in St. Louis.
