Latest Update Blue Jays are drawing interest for Navarro Tue Nov, 18, 11:12 AM
Shows a good all-round talent level as both a hitter and catcher. Doesn't strike out much and has shown he can handle a pitching staff. Switch-hits.
Flaws: : Doesn't have a lot of home-run power with the bat. Is very streaky as a hitter. Lacks consistency in his defensive game, especially in throwing out runners.
Now that the Jays have committed to Russell Martin, a potential trade of Navarro seems like more than just a possibility. While he wasn't a major disappointment for the Jays overall, Navarro's production took a major hit with his move to the AL. He dropped in power (ISO, SLG) and average and struggled early with his plate discipline., though he reined that back in. He's a good defensive catcher and can easily handle the job for any major league team.Analyst: Howard Bender
Josh Thole continues to work as R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, so Navaro's absence from the lineup is nothing new. He'll be back for Sunday's action looking to build on that .379 September average.Analyst: Howard Bender
Navarro continues to rake as the Toronto catcher. He now has a five game hitting streak and has evolved into a must play fantasy option. He has eight hits, seven RBIs, and even a stolen base during that span. Navarro has 68 RBIs on the year to go with a .287 average. Start Navarro.Analyst: Colby Conway
Over a week and a half ago, Navarro was hitting .271 as the Toronto backstop. 11 days later, his average is up to .285. Navarro has garnered the "must-start" status as he has 12 home runs and 65 RBIs at a thin catching position. Start Navarro when he is behind the plate for Toronto.Analyst: Colby Conway
