Angels recalled OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro owns a weak .254/.318/.356 batting line in 130 plate appearances this season at the major league level. He will function as outfield depth for the Angels.
Sep 2 - 5:03 PM

Angels optioned OF Efren Navarro to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro is batting just .254/.318/.356 in 130 plate appearances this season at the major league level. He'll likely return when rosters expand early next week.
Aug 30 - 5:15 PM

Efren Navarro hit his first big-league homer off Justin Verlander in Saturday's win over the Tigers.

Navarro also had an RBI groundout and a walk in the game. He's 10-for-30 since coming up from Triple-A on July 12, and he deserves to be in the lineup against right-handers on a regular basis for now.

After replacing an injured Josh Hamilton, Efren Navarro went 2-for-3 with a go-ahead single Friday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Tigers.

Both Angels runs came in the sixth, as Kole Calhoun doubled in Chris Iannetta and Navarro singled in Calhoun. Navarro is hitting .333 with a 3/4 K/BB ratio in 27 at-bats since being called up on July 12. It makes sense for the Angels to use him against all right-handers right now, but they haven't made any sort of commitment to him yet.
Jul 26 - 1:35 AM

Angels recalled OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro impressed during his brief audition with the Halos earlier in the season, slashing .297/.350/.432 with three RBI in his 37 at-bats. He isn't likely to see enough playing time to be worth the addition in AL-only leagues.
Jul 12 - 3:20 PM

Angels optioned OF Efren Navarro to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The 28-year-old impressed during his limited time with the Halos, slashing .297/.350/.432 with three RBI in his 37 at-bats. He's likely to be back with the team the next time they need an extra outfielder.

Angels recalled OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro is starting at first base for the Angels on Saturday against the Rangers. He was 9-for-29 (.310) with five doubles in 11 games earlier this season for Anaheim but probably won't play enough to hold fantasy relevance.
Jun 21 - 6:18 PM

Angels optioned OF Efren Navarro to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro hit .310/.375/.483 over 11 games for the Halos, but the Angels are getting other outfielders back healthy and there's no longer a spot for the 28-year-old. He'll be back later this season.
May 23 - 5:55 PM

Efren Navarro doubled twice Friday in his season debut for the Angels.

It was Navarro's 13th major league game; he played in eight in 2011 and four last year. It's hard to tell how the Angels intend to divide playing time now with so many young players up for part-time roles. Navarro may have a little short-time value in AL-only leagues, but that's no given.
May 9 - 11:09 PM

Angels recalled INF/OF Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro is getting the start in left field on Friday. The soon-to-be 28-year-old was batting .315/.401/.378 with no homers and 14 RBI at Salt Lake.
May 9 - 3:24 PM

Angels purchased the contract of 1B Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro hit .326/.404/.454 with seven homers and 81 RBI for Salt Lake this season. His playing time over the final weeks figures to be limited.
Mon, Sep 16, 2013 06:19:00 PM

Angels sent 1B Efren Navarro outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro batted .317/.368/.488 over 547 plate appearances in the minors this season before earning a promotion to the big leagues in September. Even with those numbers, at the age of 25 it's hard to call him a prospect.

Angels purchased the contract of 1B Efren Navarro from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro, 25, batted .317/.368/.488 with 12 homers, 73 RBI and an .856 OPS over 547 plate appearances this season. He had never hit more than six home runs in any of his previous five minor league seasons before playing in the Pacific Coast League, so he is highly unlikely to be a regular at first base in the long run. Still, this is a just reward for a fine season.
