Efren Navarro went 3-for-4 and drove in two of the Angels' three runs Tuesday against the Astros.

Navarro is still trying to convince Mike Scioscia to play him regularly against righties. He's hitting .293 in 58 at-bats, albeit with just three extra-base hits (all doubles) and five RBI. He'd still seem to be a better option than the alternatives.
Jun 24 - 1:26 AM

Efren Navarro went 3-for-4 as the Angels' left fielder in Thursday's win.

Angels writer Mike DiGiovanna suggested before the game that Navarro is due a look as the team's left fielder. We'd tend to agree, though it might not happen all at once. After all, the start tonight was his first since May 30.

Navarro knocked in a run with a single in the fourth and another run with a double in the sixth. The 28-year-old posted a .642 OPS in 174 plate appearances last season. Primarily a first baseman, he's been working on playing in the outfield to improve his odds of landing a job on the Angels' bench.
Mar 7 - 7:14 PM

Efren Navarro is on the Angels' active roster for their ALDS matchup against the Royals.

Brennan Boesch and John McDonald did not make the cut. Navarro batted just .245/.302/.340 in 174 plate appearances this season for Anaheim, but his minor league numbers have always been fairly promising.

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.
