Brewers lose starting pitcher to Japan

MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Milwaukee Brewers' starter Chris Narveson will pitch in Japan next season. The 32-year-old left-hander has signed a one-year contract with the Yakult Swallows of Tokyo. That's the same team on which former Brewers' outfielder Norichika Aoki played for eight years. Media reports said Narveson will get $850,000, with the possibility of making more with performance incentives.

He won 23 games for Milwaukee as a starter in 2010-and-2011, but had injury problems after that. He missed most of the 2012 season with a rotator cuff injury suffered after just two starts. After surgery, Narveson returned to Milwaukee as a reliever this past season. Again, he lasted only two games before he sprained his middle throwing finger. Narveson was never the same after that. He had an E-R-A of 7.00 while going on 0-and-1 on a minor league rehab assignment.

Narveson was out-righted to Triple-"A" later in the year, and he finished 2013 with a 4-and-7 record for the Nashville Sounds with a five-point-one-four E-R-A. To show that he was healthy, Narveson pitched in the Dominican Winter League. He went 2-and-1 in five starts with a 1.98 E-R-A.
