Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (quadriceps) was out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game Saturday, May 3, due to right quadriceps tightness. Navarro is currently available for pinch-hitting duties, but he cannot play defense.
Fantasy Tip: The fact Navarro is being made available for pinch-hitting duties means that the team is not expecting him to land on the 15-day disabled list, so that's a good sign. However, if he cannot return to the starting lineup Sunday, fantasy owners in all formats will want to keep him reserved for the upcoming week.

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro was out of the starting lineup for the third straight game Tuesday, April 22, against the Baltimore Orioles. C Josh Thole works as the personal catch for SP R.A. Dickey, who started Tuesday, and he has been hitting well. "Thole is swinging," manager John Gibbons said. "I could tell (Navarro) was starting to slow down a bit. It helps us keep (him) fresh over the whole season, and he'll be available on the bench if we need him."
