Reds Sign Dioner Navarro

The Reds signed catcher Dioner Navarro to a minor league deal, according to the team's Twitter feed.  He'll earn $800K plus $200K in incentives in the bigs, tweets Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.  Navarro, 28 in February, will provide veteran depth after catching tandem Devin Mesoraco and Ryan Hanigan.  He's represented by MDR Sports Management.

Navarro hit .193/.276/.324 in 202 plate appearances for the Dodgers last year, catching 428 innings.  He was designated for assignment in August.  The Reds' other non-roster invitees include Sean Gallagher, Ron Mahay, Kanekoa Texeira, Clay Zavada, and Corky Miller.

He was supposed to be such a good catcher. I really liked him with his short stint with the Yankees.

Yeah, and he did very well for the Rays for the later half of the 2007 season and all of the 2008 season before suddenly tanking. The amazing thing is, this guy is still only 27…

Any chance Navarro becomes Mesoroco’s backup and Rays get Ryan Hanigan? A fan can dream…

That dude is the biggest homer fan I’ve ever seen. According to him the Cards are an awful team that just somehow lucked into winning the world series lol. If it’s just luck then surely the Reds should have lucked into one in the last 20 years instead of being largely forgettable.
