Christopher Gregg Narveson (born December 20, 1981 in Englewood, Colorado) is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers. He won a World Series Championship in his rookie year as a brief member of the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals. He was signed to a minor league contract by the Milwaukee Brewers on December 3, 2007.

He was recalled by the Brewers from Nashville on June 14, 2009 and pitched in his first game with Milwaukee on June 15. He was outrighted to Nashville on July 13 after being designated for assignment. He was called up again on August 21 and appeared in a game the next day, earning his first major league win. He entered the Brewers starting rotation on September 13 making a spot start in place of Manny Parra and gained his first major league win as a starter on September 23, striking out 10 in the process.

Narveson made the Brewers roster in 2010 with the intention of him being a long distance reliever and a spot starter. However, the struggles of Manny Parra gave Narveson the chance to start and he ended up being the Brewers 5th starter for the second half of the season. Narveson finished the season with a 12-9 record in 28 starts, a 4.99 ERA, and 137 strikeouts in just over 160 innings pitched.

Narveson was named the 5th starter on a revamped Brewers starting rotation for 2011. Narveson started 28 games for the Brewers in 2011 and finished with a respectable 11-8 record, with a 4.45 ERA and 126 strikeouts in 161 innings pitched. Narveson just missed starting 30 games when he missed a couple starts in August due to cutting the thumb on his pitching hand with a pair of sissors while trying to fix his glove.

Wisconsin has always been a special place for Narveson as his grandma Elaine owned and operated Narvey's Restaurant in Dodgeville, Wisconsin.
