Astros re-signed SS Oswaldo Navarro to a minor league deal.

Astros sent INF Oswaldo Navarro outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Navarro was designated for assignment by the Astros last week after going 1-for-20 in the big leagues and posting a .271/.361/.424 batting line in 288 at-bats at the Triple-A level. He doesn't have a great future.

Astros designated INF Oswaldo Navarro for assignment.

Navarro was cleared to make room for the newly-acquired Enerio Del Rosario on the 40-man roster. The 25-year-old infielder batted was 1-for-20 in 14 games with the Astros earlier in the season and batted .271/.361/.424 with six home runs and 37 RBI in 288 at-bats with Triple-A Round Rock.

Astros optioned SS Oswaldo Navarro to Triple-A Round Rock.

Navarro will make way for infielder Anderson Hernandez, who was claimed off waivers Wednesday and is expected to join up with the Astros on Friday. The 25-year-old Navarro went 1-for-20 while in the big leagues.

Astros recalled SS Oswaldo Navarro from Triple-A Round Rock.

Ozzie should see a good chunk of starts at shortstop for the Astros until Tommy Manzella recovers from his fractured index finger. Navarro, 25, has a nice-looking .298/.400/.466 batting line in 161 at-bats this season for the Round Rock Express, but he's far from a solid fantasy option.

Astros optioned infielder Oswaldo Navarro to Triple-A Round Rock.

One would think the Astros would be willing to try just about anything at this point, but Navarro, who was hitting .312/.418/.506 in Triple-A, was given three at-bats in nine days with the club.

Astros purchased the contact of SS Oswaldo Navarro from Triple-A Round Rock.

Navarro, 25, hasn't played in the big leagues since 2006, when he debuted as a 21-year-old for the Mariners. Four years later, he will provide infield depth at second base and short for the struggling Astros.

Oswaldo Navarro went 3-for-5 on Sunday and is off to a 6-for-10 start at Double-A West Tenn.

Navarro, who debuted for the Mariners as a 21-year-old in 2006, had seen his stock fall so far that he was slated to be a backup in Double-A this year. However, Carlos Triunfel's injury has provided him with an opportunity to play regularly again. He hit .261/.326/.333 in 357 at-bats for Triple-A Tacoma last season.

Mariners sent INF Oswaldo Navarro, LHP Jake Woods, C Rene Rivera and OF Mike Wilson outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

The Mariners prepared for their September callups by opening up four spots on the 40-man roster. We're shocked that not one of these players got claimed. Navarro has lousy numbers again this year, but he's just 22 and he's another one of the players the Mariners have tried to rush through the minors. As strong of a defender he is, he still has a chance to be a useful player someday. Rivera, who spent his age 22 season backing up Kenji Johjima in Seattle, may yet become a legitimate No. 2 catcher someday, and Wilson has tools, if not performance. Navarro, at least, should have gotten picked up by someone.

Mariners recalled infielder Oswaldo Navarro from Triple-A Tacoma.

Navarro, a 21-year-old switch-hitter, hit .258/.348/.332 with eight steals in 16 attempts between Double-A San Antonio and Tacoma. He's a fine defender with some offensive potential, but he's a couple of years away from being ready to contribute.
Fri, Sep 8, 2006 07:41:00 PM

Oswaldo Navarro doubled twice and drove in five runs Tuesday for Double-A San Antonio.

Navarro has struggled in Double-A, but that's no surprise. He actually does have a .378 OBP to go along with his .247 average and .321 slugging percentage. Since he's just 21 and he's a very good defender, he has some promise.
