With Diaz bound for Pittsburgh, Navarro moves up


With now ex-Portland shortstop Argenis Diaz on his way to the Pirates organization, Salem shortstop Yamaico Navarro has been promoted to Double-A to take his place. Since missing most of the first half of the 2009 season following surgery to remove the hook of his hamate bone, Navarro has hit a combined .304/.360/.496 with 10 doubles, 4 home runs and 19 RBI in 115 at-bats for Lowell and Salem. Last season for Greenville and Lancaster, Navarro put up impressive .304/.359/.447 numbers with 27 doubles, 6 triples, 11 home runs and 77 RBI in 506 at-bats. Originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic in 2005, Navarro is currently the eleventh-ranked prospect in the Red Sox organization according to SoxProspects.com.
