Milwaukee J-S blog: Freak accident shelves Narveson

Another addition to the “Dumb Injury Hall of Fame”.

A freak accident in the clubhouse during their 5-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night has knocked one the Milwaukee Brewers’ starters out of his next turn in the rotation.

Left-hander Chris Narveson was trying to fix some laces on his glove with a pair of scissors when his hand somehow slipped. He sliced the tip of his left thumb deeply enough that he had to have eight stitches, and left Busch Stadium with his digit bandaged and in a splint as a result.

“I was just fixing my glove,” Narveson said. “I guess the screw on the end of the thing between the scissors was sticking through the bolt a little bit, I had my thumb up there and ran it across. Next thing, I look down and I’ve got a freaking gash in my thumb. I was hoping it wasn’t that deep, but it ended up being deep, so they put a few stitches in there.”

Narveson, 8-6 with a 4.49 earned-run average on the season, was scheduled to start Friday’s series opener with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park. Now, the Brewers will have to evaluate their options, as Narveson is no longer an option.

The Cardinals didn’t escape the game unscathed, either (although a much more conventional injury):
MLB.com: [RHP Lance] Lynn likely headed to DL with oblique strain

Rookie right-hander Lance Lynn, an ascendant key to the club’s resurgent bullpen, was removed from Tuesday night’s 5-3 loss to the Brewers due to what the club announced as a strained left oblique muscle. No timetable for his potential return was given, but it’s likely that Lynn is headed to the 15-day disabled list.
...
A club source said after the game that the injury was more toward the severe end of things than the minor end. La Russa and the source both indicated that despite the announcement, the injury may be a little bit further toward Lynn’s back than in the front of his rib cage.
...
For the year, Lynn is 1-1 in 18 appearances, 16 relief outings, with a 3.12 ERA, 40 strikeouts and 10 walks in 34 2/3 innings.

Fun game last night. The Brewers defense kept giving the Cards a helping hand but the pitchers minimized the damage.

I am sure there is a fair amount kevetching about Pujols struggles against Milwaukee this season. Albert made the 3rd out in an inning four times last night if my count is correct. And he had multiple chances to make an impact on the game.

The strike zone seemed low last night but nobody was grousing, surprisingly. Well, except Pujols who always grouses.

Prince is the most aggressive bad defender I have seen in some time. His throw home was stupid but Skip obliged by sliding high and missing the plate. Credit the umpire for being on top of the situation.

The Brewers manager baserunning aggressiveness apparently is taught to the pitchers. I was flabbergasted when Marcum got himself picked off third for breaking down the line on a ball that scooted a few feet from the catcher.

Nyjer Morgan has been nothing but brilliant for the Crew. I know the fella has a bad rap but he has done everything well in Milwaukee. He hits, bunts, runs hard, runs smart, plays defense and is in the center of every rally.

Imagine what would have happened if he were running with the scissors.

Brewers vs Braves, who wins that matchup? I'd say the Braves.
