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

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.

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.
