RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2016

Navarro fell into a familiar pattern in 2015, as he performed well at Triple-A Salt Lake (.329/.380./442) but was unable to translate his skills to the big league level, notching just a 66 wRC+ in 88 plate appearances. Navarro's two major strengths are batting average and on-base percentage, as he sports a healthy .300/.365/.417 slash line in nine minor league seasons, but much of that stems from a BABIP that has exceeded .380 in the each of the past three years. Navarro will enter his age-29 season with just 256 at-bats in the majors which likely means that it will take an extended absence from a lineup regular for him to see consistent playing time.

2015

After seeing 12 at-bats combined in the major leagues during his eight years in the Angels' minor league system, Navarro saw 174 plate appearances last season, as a variety of injuries allowed him to get time in the outfield and at first base. Navarro has been a solid contributor at Triple-A Salt Lake, hitting .326 in each of the last two seasons, but he struggled in his first real exposure to major league pitching, slugging just .340 with the big club last year. Navarro showed some positives in his peripherals, as he struck out in just 15.5% of his plate appearances, while drawing 13 walks. Barring an injury, however, Navarro is unlikely to see much time in the big leagues, as his natural position is currently occupied by Albert Pujols. He will once again be used as organizational depth heading into the 2015 season.

2012

Navarro took advantage of the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League and hit a career-high 12 home runs last season. Though Navarro advanced a level each of the last two seasons, he will turn 26 in May and is well down the list among Angels first-base prospects. Expect him to open 2012 as the starting first baseman with Triple-A Salt Lake.
