Narvaez is making progress in his return from a left hamstring strain, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
Narvaez landed on the injured list at the start of May and was expected to miss two weeks. He resumed running recently and is expected to start catching over the weekend, so he appears to be roughly on that same schedule. Manny Pina (toe) should return from the injured list within the next two days and will spend a brief time as the team's starting catcher until Narvaez returns.
Narvaez's strained left hamstring is expected to keep him out for roughly two weeks, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Narvaez will be eligible to return from the injured list May 11, but it looks as though he'll need at least a few more days than that. Mario Feliciano and Luke Maile will be the Brewers' backstops for now, though Manny Pina is expected to return from his fractured toe within a week.
Narvaez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained left hamstring Saturday.
Narvaez left Friday's game against the Dodgers with the injury, which was deemed to be serious enough to sideline him for at least 10 days following additional tests. He'll be eligible to return May 11, but it's not yet clear whether or not that's a realistic possibility. Mario Feliciano was recalled in a corresponding move and will back up Luke Maile during his time with the team.
Narvaez (hamstring) will undergo additional testing on his left hamstring Saturday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Narvaez was removed from Friday's win over the Dodgers in the bottom of the sixth inning after he experienced hamstring tightness while running to first base. If Narvaez is unable to play Saturday, Luke Maile could take over behind the dish for Milwaukee.
Narvaez left Friday's game against the Dodgers due to left hamstring tightness, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Narvaez suffered the injury while running out a single in the bottom of the sixth inning, and he was immediately removed from the game after reaching first base. Prior to his departure, he went 1-for-3 with a strikeout. It's not yet clear whether Narvaez will be forced to miss additional time.
Narvaez exited Friday's game against the Dodgers with an apparent left leg injury, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.
Narvaez singled in the bottom of the sixth inning, but he grabbed his left leg after reaching first base and was replaced by a pinch runner. The nature and severity of the issue aren't yet clear.
Narvaez is not starting Monday against the Marlins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
It's possible Narvaez, who swings left-handed, could platoon with the right-handed Manny Pina going forward. The Brewers haven't had the chance to show off any potential platoons so far this season, as they somehow managed to face 21 straight righties to open the season before facing southpaw Trevor Rogers on Monday.
Narvaez is not in the lineup Friday against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old went 6-for-12 with a homer, a double and four RBI while starting all three games in San Diego earlier in the week, so he'll receive an extra day off Friday after Thursday's scheduled off day. Manny Pina will start behind the plate in place of Narvaez in the series opener at Chicago.
Narvaez went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over the Padres.
Narvaez is the hottest offensive player for the Brewers right now. His two-run home run off Keone Kela ended up being all the Brewers needed to win. The catcher is batting .396 with an OPS of 1.059, and he sports a .467 average with a home run and four RBI in his last five games.
Narvaez went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the 6-0 win over the Padres on Tuesday.
Narvaez has turned the tide from his struggles at the plate last year, lacing a team-high 17 hits and slashing .386/.451/.996 in 51 plate appearances. The Brewers signed him prior to last season in large part due to his offensive upside, and he is currently amongst the leaders in multiple batting categories for catchers.
Narvaez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.
Narvaez looks to be getting a routine maintenance day after he caught in each of the team's last three games. Manny Pina will get a turn behind the dish in Sunday's series finale, forming a battery with Freddy Peralta.
Narvaez went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Cubs.
Narvaez ended his three-game hitting streak Tuesday, but he found a way to produce in this one and he's now hit safely in eight of his first 10 contests. The backstop is hitting .414 with a 1.091 OPS through his first 33 plate appearances in 2021.
Narvaez is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Narvaez is off to a hot start following a very disappointing 2020 campaign, as he's posted a 1.197 OPS through 29 plate appearances. He's been the clear No. 1 option behind the plate thus far this season, starting seven of the first 11 games. Manny Pina will make his fourth start of the year Tuesday.
Narvaez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals.
Narvaez started the first two games of the series but will head to the bench for the finale after going 3-for-7 with a run and two walks. Manny Pina will start behind the plate and bat sixth Sunday for Milwaukee.
Narvaez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Narvaez looks to be getting a routine maintenance day after drawing starts behind the plate in both of the first two games of the series in Chicago. Backup catcher Manny Pina will enter the lineup Wednesday in place of Narvaez, who slugged a home run in both of his starts against the Cubs.
Narvaez went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and one walk in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.
Narvaez took Adbert Alzolay deep in the fourth inning to notch his second home run of the season and second long ball in as many games. He's opened the campaign hot overall, recording at least one hit in all four of his starts.
Narvaez went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Cubs.
He took Jason Adam deep in the seventh inning to provide the Brewers with their only offense of the night. Narvaez has hits in all three of his starts to begin the season, going 5-for-11 with one homer and four RBI.
Narvaez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.
Carrying over the momentum from a hot spring, Narvaez has gotten off to a nice little 3-for-8 start to the 2021 season. Narvaez was the only Brewer to record a hit in Saturday's game. He will get a day to rest his legs as Manny Pina takes over behind the plate Sunday.
Narvaez went 1-for-3 during Saturday's loss against the Twins.
Narvaez was the only Milwaukee player who mustered a hit in a game in which the Brewers were completely outmatched. Narvaez was seeing the ball well in spring training and he's started the regular season on a strong note as well, hitting safely in both contests and going 3-for-6 with an RBI thus far in his first two games.
Narvaez went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, three runs and a walk over his last two spring games.
Narvaez started the spring hot, and he is ending it in the same fashion. He really struggled with the bat last season, but he made serious strides behind the plate, and the Brewers decided to keep him around for another year. That looks to have been the right move thus far, as he has posted a stellar 1.276 OPS this spring.
