Latest Update Navarro is not in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Monday. Mon Jul, 28, 04:27 PM
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.
Navarro has started every game since last Monday. This is just a brief respite for the Jays' catcher. He will be replaced by Josh Thole at catcher.Analyst: Joshua Balay
Navarro has brought some consistency to the Blue Jays after dealing with the ups and downs of J.P. Arencibia over the past few seasons. The homerun was Navarro's sixth of the season to go along with his .262 average. With the Blue Jays facing Boston tomorrow Navarro with face off against John Lackey who has held him to just two hits in 19 at bats.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
After watching Navarro fail to duplicate last year's power totals through the first three months, suddenly, the catcher is finally starting to produce at an even higher level. He's batting .409 (9-for-22) with one home run and seven RBI over the last six games and will continue to receive at-bats as the primary backstop in Toronto.Analyst: Howard Bender
Though it seems clear that last season was the pinnacle for Navarro, he's still been a decent second-catcher option for most, batting .267 with three home runs and 30 RBI over 221 at-bats. Despite the hitter-friendly environment of Toronto, it's doubtful that he hits for the same power he did during his 89 games with the Cubs, but he can still drive in plenty of runs and be a productive addition to your lineup. Just keep your expectations in check.Analyst: Howard Bender
