Navarro started in left field for the second straight day Friday and went 1-for-4 in the win over Oakland.

The left-handed hitting Navarro may receive a short run of playing time for the Halos while Matt Joyce serves as the team's DH against right-handed pitching. To date, Navarro has built the resume of a solid Quad-A player, but most of his chances with the Angels have been as a part-time player.

Navarro was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Vinnie Pestano was sent down to make room on the roster for Navarro, who will return for his third stint with the major league club this season. Navarro will start at first base and bat eighth Saturday against Tigers right-hander Shane Green as Albert Pujols gets another day off from field duties.

Navarro was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

Navarro spent one week with the Angels but gave up his roster spot to make room for relief pitcher Ryan Mattheus on Friday. During his short stint in the majors, Navarro made a total of four appearances at the plate and registered just one hit. He's a candidate for another promotion in due time but isn't expected to see much time in the lineup for the Angels this season.

Navarro was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

Navarro has split his time between the majors and Triple-A thus far, but his .394/.429/.576 batting line was enough to earn him another chance with the big league club. The Angels sent Grant Green back to Triple-A to open up a spot for him on the 25-man roster.

Navarro was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Angels needed a fresh arm after the bullpen was forced to go nine innings in the last two games alone, and Navarro was a logical choice for a demotion. Navarro's been used sparingly (15 at-bats), and has done little with his opportunities (three hits, three strikeouts). Cam Bedrosian was recalled to take his spot on the roster.

Navarro has three hits and three runs scored in 15 at-bats to begin the season.

Navarro's primary role on the club is a backup to Albert Pujols, but his versatility earned him a start in left field against the Mariners on Apr. 8. It's hard to imagine the 28-year-old will be anything more than a reserve player at this point in his career, but he could be worth a roster spot in AL-Only leagues if Pujols has to miss time.

Navarro was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

Navarro was just sent down last weekend, but with Salt Lake's season ending Monday, the 28-year-old is eligible to rejoin the big club. In 44 games with the Angels this season, Navarro has hit .254/.318/.356 with one homer, and his opportunities may be limited moving with the likes of Brennan Boesch, C.J. Cron and Luis Jimenez now on the roster as well.
