Parra back up, Narveson designated for assignment
Manny Parra will return from his demotion to Triple-A Nashville to start against the Cardinals on Thursday.
Not necessarily that he’s ready, but because the Brewers need him.
“He’s pitched a couple of good games,” Brewers manager Ken Macha said of Parra’s Minors stint. “He’ll be given the opportunity to take charge of what we’d like him to take charge of, and that’s being a guy who’s going to start for us every fifth day.”
Parra will take the spot previously occupied by Seth McClung, who worked 7 1/3 total innings in his two starts. To make room on the 25-man roster, the Brewers designated left-hander Chris Narveson for assignment after their 5-4 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday night.
I did not see Parra in the clubhouse, but I imagine he made it to Milwaukee at some point during the day or the team would not have announced the roster move.
