White Sox | Dioner Navarro signs with Chicago

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 08:58:08 -0800

Free-agent C Dioner Navarro (Blue Jays) signed a one-year deal with the Chicago White Sox Thursday, Dec. 3, according to sources. Navarro played in just 54 games for the Toronto Blue Jays last year as the backup to C Russell Martin.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro had a .246 average and five home runs in a backup role last year. He'll be expected to split time with Alex Avila in his new home, with Navarro likely serving in more of the backup role. There's not much fantasy value to be had here except for in deep leagues that start two catchers.

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro, who will become eligible for free agency in several weeks, is open to returning to the team next season.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro hit .246 with five home runs and 20 RBIs in 46 regular-season games but will probably look for a situation in free agency where he can find more playing time.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro in for Game 1

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 12:52:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is starting behind the plate and batting seventh in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday, Oct. 16. C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been the personal catcher for Marco Estrada, so it is no surprise to see Navarro starting Friday. The catcher is a strong value play at FantasyScore Friday, as he opens significant cap wiggle room. Navarro is 1-for-5 with a double in the postseason.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out of ALDS Game 3 lineup

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 14:22:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Oct. 11, for Game 3 of the American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers. C Dioner Navarro will bat seventh against Rangers SP Martin Perez.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has a higher batting average against the left, but 18 of Martin's 23 homers have come against right-handed pitching. Navarro ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has a similar average (.278-3-5 against lefties), so he may be a decent option if you're trying to save some cap room.

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:28:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Monday, Sept. 28. C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been serving as Marco Estrada's personal catcher, and the backstop stands as a nice value play at FantasyScore Monday.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro starting vs. Rays

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:36:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Sunday, Sept. 27. C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) offers upside at FantasyScore Sunday, as he has rattled off a respectable second half with a .275/.333/.449 slash line. Hitting behind the top hitters in the lineup should yield a few RBI opportunities, too.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting Tuesday

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 13:20:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 22. C Dioner Navarro is behind the dish and is hitting sixth against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is better from the left side of the plate against right-handers, but he still only has two homers from that side and a .258 average (8-for-31) in limited at-bats. Plus, the rookie Severino has electric stuff. You're better off looking elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro starting vs. Braves

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 13:05:36 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is starting behind the plate and batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Thursday, Sept. 17. C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: This is the third consecutive game Navarro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has caught starter Marco Estrada ($7,000, 14.0% of cap), so seasonal owners of Martin ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will want to note that. Plus, with Josh Thole ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) catching R.A. Dickey ($6,700, 7.4% of cap), there aren't many starts for Martin left. Navarro stands a worthy low-price flier at FantasyScore Thursday. It is a nice matchup against Wisler ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) who owns a 5.74 ERA through 15 starts this season, too.
