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.
