Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (quadriceps) was out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game Saturday, May 3, due to right quadriceps tightness. Navarro is currently available for pinch-hitting duties, but he cannot play defense.
Fantasy Tip: The fact Navarro is being made available for pinch-hitting duties means that the team is not expecting him to land on the 15-day disabled list, so that's a good sign. However, if he cannot return to the starting lineup Sunday, fantasy owners in all formats will want to keep him reserved for the upcoming week.
