Stewart: Alex Avila, Dioner Navarro could be fits for Diamondbacks
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Wednesday that Tigers catcher Alex Avila or Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro could be fits with the team in potential trade scenarios, the Arizona Republic reports.
The Diamondbacks moved on from Miguel Montero this week, sending the catcher to the Cubs, and Avila or Navarro could end up behind the plate as Montero's successor. The Blue Jays are likely willing to part ways with Navarro after signing Russell Martin earlier this offseason.
Navarro seeks trade from Blue Jays in wake of Martin signing

|(11/20/14) Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro has expressed his interest in being traded after Toronto signed catcher Russell Martin to a five-year, $82 million contract, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The Jays countered Navarro's request by telling him they could get him decent playing time between DH and catcher. However, Navarro prefers a full-time catching job.
General manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday he is open to trading Navarro and wouldn't be surprised if a trade takes place, according to Sportsnet.ca. However, Navarro said he understands if a trade doesn't happen.
Report: Blue Jays getting trade interest for catcher Navarro
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/18/14) The Blue Jays are drawing trade interest in catcher Dioner Navarro in the wake of Toronto signing catcher Russell Martin to a five-year, $82 million contract, sources told FOX Sports.
The Blue Jays appear willing to move Navarro to fill other needs, but they could keep him as a backup to Martin and use him at DH as well.
Navarro, who signed a two-year, $8 million contract with the Blue Jays last offseason, played in a career-high 139 games in 2014. He hit .274 with 12 home runs, 22 doubles and 69 RBI.
Dioner Navarro returns Friday

|(9/19/14) Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro returned to the starting lineup Friday.
Navarro sat Thursday after a bout of dizziness. He missed two games due to the issue. Navarro is hitting .281/.323/.409 over 455 at-bats.
Dizziness causes Dioner Navarro scratch Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) A bout with dizziness that prevented Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro from playing Wednesday has also kept him out of the lineup Thursday night against the Yankees. Josh Thole is set to start instead.
Navarro owns a stat line of .282/.324/.410.
|2014 summary: After a breakthrough season as a part-timer in 2013, Dioner Navarro proved himself worthy of full-time duty with his performance in 2014, ranking ninth among catchers in Head-to-Head points leagues and eighth in Rotisserie. He really took off after the All-Star break, hitting .295 with seven home runs and a .789 OPS.|
Playing time status: Of course, just because he deserves to do it doesn't mean he'll get to. The Blue Jays signed Russell Martin to a big contract this offseason, and he represents a clear upgrade. Supposedly, Navarro will get some at-bats at DH, but most likely, he'll need to be traded to matter in mixed leagues still.
2015 outlook: Of course, another way to assess the whole situation is that Navarro needed a favorable hitting environment just to be usable in mixed leagues, so another destination may not totally salvage his value. Just look at his home-away splits from 2014. Even with full-time at-bats, he's more of a fallback option in two-catcher leagues than a player to target.
