Navarro turned a 3-2 deficit into a 4-3 lead with a home run in the seventh inning. The blast was a welcome one for Navarro, who had been mired in a 4-for-25 slump coming into the at-bat.

|Dioner Navarro stays hot with three-hit game |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/26/14) Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro has been hitting the ball well recently, a trend that continued Saturday in a 6-4 win over the Yankees.
Navarro strung together three hits for his fourth multi-hit performance in the last six games. He went 3 for 5 with one double and one run scored in the win.
Navarro is 8 for 20 over the last five games, and is hitting .271/.312/.385 for the season overall.
|There may not be a more fascinating case for Fantasy owners to consider in 2014 than Dioner Navarro, who landed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Blue Jays this offseason because of his work as a backup last year. That said, his .300 batting average, 13 home runs and .856 OPS in 240 at-bats weren't completely out of left field. He was an All-Star for the Rays back in 2008 but couldn't sustain anywhere close to that pace in the years that followed and was quickly relegated to a backup role. So what changed for him? For one thing, he liked hitting at Wrigley Field, batting .336 with a 1.008 OPS there compared to .266 and .711 everywhere else. That obviously won't help him in Toronto, but Rogers Centre is regarded as the more favorable park for hitters. Navarro, a switch-hitter, also seemed to make an adjustment from the right side of the plate, going from being a poor hitter there to a complete monster (.361 batting average, 1.123 OPS). If that improvement holds, he could end up being a viable mixed-league option in a full-time role. Catcher is deep enough that you shouldn't have to take that gamble on Draft Day, but you might want to keep an eye on Navarro in the early going.
