  1. Burly

    Whether or not this is a good move by the Swallows pretty much comes down to whether Narveson is now all the way back from his 2012 rotator cuff injury/surgery. His 5.14 ERA in 15 starts at AAA Nashville last season certainly wasn’t an impressive return.

    It’s also worth noting that Narveson was one of the better hitting pitchers in MLB in recent years (.227 batting average and .522 OPS in 131 major league plate appearances) so maybe Yakult can use him as a pinch hitter once in a while.
