Yamaico Navarro - #56 (IF)
Bats: Right, Throws: Right
Age: 23, Size: 5'11" 170 lbs
Acquired: Signed as an IFA in 2005
Comments: Navarro received a September callup in 2010 after a good showing in the minors. He looked way overmatched in his 46 major league PAs going 6 for 42 with 4 walks. His 2010 minor league seasons was spplit between AA/AAA where he posted a 0.275/0.356/0.437 slash-line and showed the versatility of playing multiple infield positions. If he could develop with he bat a bit more he might have a shot at starting in the majors, but at this point he looks like a backup infielder.
Career Stats (minors):
Unique Stats/Facts: Despite only,being with the club since 2006, Navarro has worn 8 different uniforms (DSL RS, Lowell, Lancaster. Greenville, Portland, Salem, Boston, Pawtucket)
Analysis: Navarro figures to start at the SS position for AAA Patwucket and be on the line to Boston in the case that a middle infielder is needed.
Tomorrow: Jonathan Papelbon
