For one month, the Brewers had three catchers on their big league roster. Then, within a day, one of those catchers got DFA’d and another hit the injured list, leaving Victor Caratini as the lone catcher of the trio still available to play.
What a week it has been for the Brewers.
The Brewers announced Thursday morning that catcher Omar Narváez would be placed on the 10-day injured list with a left quad injury. Catcher Mario Feliciano got the call from AAA Nashville to fill his spot.
Narváez got pulled from Wednesday’s game in the eighth inning. The injury was suffered during a rundown in the seventh. Per Adam McCalvy, Counsel is hopeful it will be a minimum stay for the Brewer catcher, but that sometimes these types of injuries take time. Taking his spot is Mario Feliciano, who is slashing .288/.346/.382 in 58 games with Nashville.
