According to Mike Vassallo, the media relations director for the Milwaukee Brewers, LHP Chris Narveson will miss his start on Saturday against the Colorado Rockies as he heads to the DL with an injury on his throwing arm:

Narveson, who had struggled through his first two starts, will be replaced on the roster by reliever RHP Mike McClendon. The Brewers have yet to announce who will pitch on Saturday to replace Narveson against rookie LHP Drew Pomeranz, but Baseball Nation's Rob Neyer suggests swing man RHP Marco Estrada will get the call.
