Brewers' Narveson to DL, may need surgery



 MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have placed left-hander Chris Narveson on the disabled list because of a tear in his rotator cuff, and he might need surgery.

   Narveson says he is hopeful that his injury won't need more than some rest to heal. But he's also preparing for the possibility of surgery, saying, "Sometimes, the outlook doesn't look too good, but we'll see."

   The Brewers placed Narveson on the 15-day disabled list Friday, retroactive to April 16. Right-hander Marco Estrada will start Saturday's game against Colorado in Narveson's place.

   Narveson said he is seeking a second opinion and said he hasn't yet discussed the possibility of surgery with team doctor.

 Right-handed reliever Kameron Loe will be placed on the bereavement list Saturday after the death of his grandfather.

   The Brewers recalled right-hander Mike McClendon from Triple-A Nashville, and right-hander Wily Peralta is expected to be recalled from Nashville tomorrow to take Loe's roster spot.
