Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro to DL

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:48:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Thursday, April 23, and the move was backdated to April 22. C Josh Thole was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: With Navarro and Jose Bautista (shoulder) currently sidelined, Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) and Ryan Goins should see consistent playing time, but both are nothing more than dice rolls at FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro has torn hamstring

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:34:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) has a "nice little tear" in his hamstring, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for a more detailed report on the severity of Navarro's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) injury and the recovery timeline. When healthy and in the lineup, Navarro is a nice speculative play in FantasyScore contests. His lack of playing time has made him an AL-only option at this point, though.

Orioles | BAL had interest in Dioner Navarro

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 10:56:33 -0700

The Baltimore Orioles had expressed interest in trading for Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro during spring training.

Fantasy Tip: A deal that would send Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) to Baltimore is growing increasingly unlikely, with Matt Wieters expected to rejoin the club early next month and Caleb Joseph off to a strong start this season. The Blue Jays have said they would consider trading Navarro if another team has an everyday job for him.

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, April 15. C Dioner Navarro will be the starting catcher for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has picked up a hit in all four games he has played this season and has recorded four RBI in that span. Navarro could be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin sitting Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 09:22:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris Friday, April 10. C Dioner Navarro is receiving the start behind the dish and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) becomes a cheap option behind the plate at FantasyScore, and he's worth considering in the powerful Toronto lineup if you'd like to save money for the rest of your roster.

Blue Jays | Kevin Pillar, Dioner Navarro starting

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 09:30:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the lineup for opening day against the New York Yankees Monday, April 6, while C Dioner Navarro is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Pillar ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Navarro ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) aren't great options for FantasyScore users on opening day while going up against Masahiro Tanaka.

Red Sox | BOS has no interest in Dioner Navarro

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 13:38:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is attracting no interest from the Boston Red Sox despite the injury to Red Sox C Christian Vazquez.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro appears to be stuck in Toronto with little fantasy value, so unless his situation changes he is best left undrafted in any league.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro to hit Saturday

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 07:11:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (knee) said his knee is feeling better and that he is scheduled to take batting practice Saturday, March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro's status with the Blue Jays is uncertain at this point, but he will be a backup at catcher if he remains with the team. Navarro could be an option in later rounds of AL-only drafts and could be an option in two-catcher leagues.

Diamondbacks | ARI interested in Dioner Navarro

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 04:21:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is drawing interest from the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro's fantasy value, which is in the low range due to his projected backup status, could rise in Arizona. The Diamondbacks have a collection of catchers on the roster, but Gerald Laird is the best known of the bunch. Others include prospects like Tuffy Gosewisch and Oscar Hernandez.

Tigers | DET interested in Dioner Navarro

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 04:16:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is still drawing interest from the Detroit Tigers, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Detroit appears to be hedging its bets against the continued health of Alex Avila, who was afflicted by concussion issues toward the end of last season. Navarro's fantasy value depends on how much time he would get, and with this lineup Navarro would likely be a pure backup.
