Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro wants to play everyday and reiterated his sentiments about being traded Monday, Feb. 23. "I'd like to go to a place where I can play every day, because I already know that I can do it."
Fantasy Tip: Navarro is coming off a respectable season with the Blue Jays, where he batted .274 and drove in 69 runs over 481 at-bats. The signing of Russell Martin this offseason was a significant blow to Navarro's fantasy stock, however a trade leading to additionally playing time would land Navarro back on the fantasy map. He has potential in two-catcher or single-league formats, if he is traded away from the Blue Jays.
