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.
