Narveson Clears Waivers

apparently, Narveson cleared waivers on Wednesday, and was assigned to Memphis.

obviously, the organization is happy about this. they get to keep Narvie around as insurance in case somebody gets injured (or if Looper completely tanks). somebody in the organization said they want him to go back to Memphis to continue to "develop". i feel kind of bad for Narveson, who deserves his shot, and i don't really think there's much more he can do at AAA.

but mostly i'm kind of surprised that nobody claimed him. a bunch of teams needs LH bullpen help, and a good few could probably use a 5/6 starter type making the league minimum. i know Narvie isn't exactly a world-beating prospect anymore, but he still seems like he could be a fairly valuable commodity... a poor man's Mike Maroth.

are we all over-estimating Narveson's ability? if the Cardinals didn't even give him a realistic shot at the rotation, and nobody claimed him off of waivers, maybe there's just something about him that makes clubs shy away. does this make sense to anybody else?
