Brewers' Omar Narvaez: Playing regularly this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and a walk in Thursday's spring game against the Reds.

Narvaez has seen steady playing time this spring and has reached base five times in 15 plate appearances over six games. He is set to open the season as the Brewers' primary catcher, but he will cede at least some starts and at-bats to Manny Pina when the Brewers face left-handed starters and/or manager Craig Counsell wants Pina's superior defense behind the plate.

Brewers' Omar Narvaez: Reaches deal with Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez signed a one-year, $2.725 million deal with the Brewers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old was acquired by the Brewers from the Mariners in early December and is now officially under contract with his new team. Narvaez should serve as the team's primary catcher in 2020, though his heavy career splits (.836 OPS vs. RHP and .699 OPS vs. LHP) will likely allow Manny Pina to earn regular starts against southpaws.

Brewers' Omar Narvaez: Traded to Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez was traded to the Brewers from the Mariners on Thursday in exchange for right-hander Adam Hill and a competitive balance draft pick, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The Brewers appear to have found their new primary catcher after losing Yasmani Grandal to free agency this offseason. Narvaez saw an increased role in his first season with the Mariners last year. He performed well at the plate, hitting .278/.353/.460 with 22 home runs over 132 games. While the 27-year-old showed that he is able to handle a heavy workload and is a quality offensive option at the position, he does not grade out well defensively, so he should see a modest downturn in playing time now that he is on a team with playoff aspirations. The left-handed hitter has stark career splits (99 wRC+ against LHP, 116 wRC+ against RHP), so Manny Pina, who is a superior defender, should start against most southpaws.

Mariners' Omar Narvaez: Posts three more hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in a 6-0 victory against the Pirates on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old is hitting very well, having gone 9-for-19 (.474) with three home runs in his last five games. Narvaez already has career highs in every category, and with this hot streak, he's back on track to set a new high-water mark in average too.

Mariners' Omar Narvaez: Walks it off in 10th
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez went 1-for-4 with a walk and a walkoff solo home run in the 10th inning of Saturday's 2-1 win over the White Sox.

He stuck it to his former club, driving an Alex Colome cutter off the top of the wall in right field that was confirmed as the game-winning homer after review. Narvaez has gone yard twice in the last three games, and on the year he's slashing .280/.355/.468 with 21 homers through 121 contests after hitting only 12 in 221 career games during his three seasons with the White Sox.

Mariners' Omar Narvaez: Three-hit effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the White Sox.

All three hits were singles, including one of the run-scoring variety to cap a three-run first inning for the Mariners. Narvaez later scored on Shed Long's two-run single in the fourth. The catcher has enjoyed hitting against his former team, going 7-for-14 with two RBI and three runs scored in three games versus the White Sox this year. For the season, Narvaez is hitting .280/.354/.462 with 20 homers, 52 RBI and 60 runs scored.

Mariners' Omar Narvaez: Blasts 20th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Narvaez launched a two-run shot to left center field in the third inning to reach the 20-homer mark on the season. The fourth-year catcher has slumped in September, collecting only three hits in 21 at-bats, but is nonetheless enjoying the finest season of his career with a .276/.351/.460 slash line and 51 RBI in 120 games.

The game marked Narvaez's first start since last Sunday, as he'd been besieged by back spasms throughout the week. Narvaez was able to serve as the designated hitter Saturday, and he could soon be back behind the dish if he remains free of setbacks.
