Efren Navarro 1B LAA Nov 05 '11
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.
