Efren Navarro 1B/LF LAA 1 Day

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 impressed during his brief audition with the Halos earlier in the season, slashing .297/.350/.432 with three RBI in his 37 at-bats. He isn't likely to see enough playing time to be worth the addition in AL-only leagues.

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.

Angels optioned OF Efren Navarro to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Navarro hit .310/.375/.483 over 11 games for the Halos, but the Angels are getting other outfielders back healthy and there's no longer a spot for the 28-year-old. He'll be back later this season.

Efren Navarro doubled twice Friday in his season debut for the Angels.

It was Navarro's 13th major league game; he played in eight in 2011 and four last year. It's hard to tell how the Angels intend to divide playing time now with so many young players up for part-time roles. Navarro may have a little short-time value in AL-only leagues, but that's no given.

Angels sent 1B Efren Navarro outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.
