Latest Update BlueJays still willing to deal Dioner Navarro but only for a fair return Mon Dec, 08, 08:41 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 provides some power and a decent bat as a primary backstop, although his role will be to back up Russell Martin on the Jays. There are teams that could use his skills at catcher, and there is plenty of time for him to move to one of them before spring training opens in February.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
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
