Looking for a decent catcher?
Who isn't these days, right? Unless you have a Soto, McCann, Martin or Doumit on your squad, it's probably slim pickins.
When you check out the waiver wire and blur your eyes, they all sort of look the same.
He's a 24-year-old Caracas native and he's hitting .368 this season.
Excuse me? Did I just hear .368 from a catcher?
It's not a typo. Actually, Tampa Bay's catcher was hitting .373 before a 1-for-4 day on Sunday.
And while he's not going to push Ted Williams as the next .400 hitter, Navarro did hit .285 after the All-Star break with 8 HR.
The power is yet to come (1 HR, 13 RBI), but the way he's playing (.416 obp.), it's only a matter of time, playing in a good hitter's park, er, bubble, aka the Trop.
For those of you struggling with average and are sporting a Ramon Hernandez (.216), Kenji Johjima (.226) or J.R. Towles (.146), a Navarro swapout is a quick and easy boost that won't cost you anything on the trade market.
Plus, you can't beat the name Dioner Navarro. Certain names are just destined to be fantasy stars.
