    The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that they have placed catcher Omar Narvaez on the 10-day injured list with a left quad strain. Mario Feliciano was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to take his place.

    The news surrounding Omar Narvaez comes just one day after Milwaukee designated backstop Pedro Severino for assignment. In 60 games this year as the Brewers primary catcher, Narvaez owns a .687 OPS.

    Mario Feliciano has yet to play for Milwaukee this year and has just one single career plate appearance. He drew a walk for the Brewers last season and came around to score. In 58 games at Triple-A this season, Feliciano has a .728 OPS.

    MLB Insider Robert Murray is suggesting that Milwaukee is also set to select the contract of catcher Jakson Reetz. A 26-year-old former 3rd round pick by the Washington Nationals in the 2014 Major League Baseball draft, Reetz has clubbed 25 homers between Double-A and Triple-A this season. It’s his first year with the Brewers organization, and while he had just a .613 OPS in the minors last year, Reetz owns a .984 mark this season.

    Reetz would become the 5th catcher on Milwaukee's 40-man roster. Alex Jackson is in the minors while Feliciano and Victor Caratini are on the Brewers active roster. Milwaukee has not yet made any move regarding Reetz official.
