Efren Navarro 1B/LF LAA 6 days ago

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.

Navarro was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Eric Kay of the Angels' official site reports.

In the last nine games, Navarro had been afforded just two starts, during which he notched two singles, two RBI, and one run in 11 at-bats. Although he'll likely return to the majors in short order once rosters expand, the Angels have called upon Michael Roth to aid the bullpen.

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.

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.
