Former Sox Prospect Navarro DFA'd By Birds

There was a time when Yamaico Navarro was considered a sure thing to be a fixture in the Red Sox infield. Boston signed him as an amateur free agent out of San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic in 2005. He ended up playing only 36 total games in Carmine Hose, hitting a paltry .177. In a productive move, the Sox traded him to the Royals for Mike Aviles. Kansas City shipped him off to Pittsburgh, and then Navarro landed in Camden Yards. Today, Dan Duquette designated him for assignment. How strange the twists and turns of baseball. Good luck, Yamaico!
