C - MIL - IL10
Omar Narvaez was placed on the 10-day IL with a left quad strain Thursday.
This is a big blow for the Brewers who just designated Pedro Severino for assignment yesterday. Milwaukee has called up Mario Feliciano to back up Victor Caratini while Narvaez is on the shelf. Fantasy managers will want to await word from the Brewers if this injury is going to require longer than 10 days to heal.
Teams have reportedly been checking in on Milwaukee Brewers catcher Omar Narvaez.
Narvaez is making $5 million this year before becoming a free agent after the season. There are a number of teams in need of a catcher. It would likely take a pretty big haul for the Brewers to trade Narvaez unless they feel confident enough in Victor Caratini and Pedro Severino behind the plate.
Omar Narvaez went 2-for-3 Saturday, singling, homering, scoring one run, and driving in one run in the Brewers' 9-4 win over the Red Sox.
Narvaez continues to struggle at the plate for the Brewers, hitting just .158 with three runs scored, two home runs, and five runs batted in over his last 15 games. The catcher should not be relied on by fantasy managers, carrying a .699 OPS with 16 runs scored, four home runs, and 18 runs batted in through 58 games this season.
Omar Narvaez went 1-for-3 Sunday, blasting a two-run home run in the Brewers' 2-0 win over the Pirates.
Narvaez has now picked up hits in five of his last six games for the Brewers, scoring three runs and driving in four runs in that span. The 30-year-old catcher is hitting .258 with 15 runs scored, three home runs, and 16 runs batted in through 46 games this season.
Omar Narvaez went 1-for-2 Thursday, doubling, walking twice, and driving in one run in the Brewers' 8-7 loss to the Pirates.
Narvaez extended his hitting streak to four games Thursday, scoring one run and driving in two runs in that span. The 30-year-old catcher is hitting .264 with 13 runs scored, two home runs, and 14 runs batted in through 44 games this season.
