Rays Reach Impasse With Dioner Navarro

2:22pm: A quote from Navarro's agent Kendall Almerico, via Topkin:

"It appears that we have reached an impasse and that we will be going to arbitration on Monday.  After that, I hope to resume negotiations on a long-term deal so Navi can play in Tampa for the rest of his career. But that may depend on how the Rays present their case and whether the Rays treat Navi respectfully at the hearing as Navi has instructed us to treat the Rays throughout this entire process."

11:04am: According to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times, the Rays are still in talks with their two remaining arbitration-eligible players, Dioner Navarro and Willy Aybar.

The Rays are only $150K apart with Aybar, and the sides are discussing a possible two-year deal.  Aybar, a Super Two player, is under team control through 2012.

Navarro faces a $400K gap with the Rays, and they're also discussing multiyear possibilities.  He's under team control through 2011.
