Blue Jays get C Navarro from White Sox for minor leaguer

BY foxsports • August 26, 2016

CHICAGO (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays have added depth at catcher for the stretch run by re-acquiring veteran Dioner Navarro from the Chicago White Sox.

The Blue Jays sent minor league left-hander Colton Turner to Chicago in Friday's waiver deal. Navarro is likely to be the backup in Toronto behind Russell Martin.

The 32-year-old Navarro spent two seasons with the Blue Jays before signing with the White Sox as a free agent in December. He's struggled the season, hitting .210 with six homers and 32 RBIs in 85 games.

The White Sox were looking to clear a roster spot with catcher Alex Avila set to come off the disabled list.

The 25-year-old Turner has split time between Class A and Double-A this season.
