Cameron designated for assignment, Navarro called up to Boston

According to Tom Caron of NESN, outfielder Mike Cameron has been designated for assignment. Multiple sources are indicating that Pawtucket infielder Yamaico Navarro has been called up to Boston.

Cameron, 38, had been a major disapointment during his tenure with the Red Sox, missing most of the 2010 season to injury and hitting just .219/.285/.352 with 7 home runs and 24 RBI in 81 games across two seasons.

Navarro, 23, was originally signed as an international free agent in 2005. He made his major league debut in 2010 for Boston, collecting 6 hits in 42 at-bats and appearing in 42 games. In 2011, Navarro has hit .258/.362/469 with 5 home runs and 13 RBI in 34 games for Triple-A Pawtucket while seeing time at all three outfield positions. Navarro provides the team with much needed flexibility as he is adept in the outfield as well as in the infield.
