The Process Versus The Brewers

Chris Narveson

A southpaw, Narveson has been slightly worse against righties than lefties throughout his career. Generally a neutral pitcher, Narveson has groundball tendencies this season, possibly caused by an increased usage of his changeup. His fastball sits in the 87-to-89 range and he works with a low-to-mid 70s curve, low-80s change, and low-80s slider.

Zack Greinke

Don’t let Greinke’s 5.23 earned run average deceive you, as his peripherals are ethereal this season (11.8 strikeouts per nine innings pitched, 1.52 walks per nine innings pitched). Grienke throws a low-to-mid 90s fastball, a slider, a curveball, and a changeup. Lefties have had more success against him over his career, but he is one of the better pitchers in the National League.

Shaun Marcum

An old foe, Marcum might miss his start, meaning Sergio Mitre or Marco Estrada would likely get the call. More on that later, should it occur.
