White Sox, catcher Dioner Navarro reach 1-year deal

There’s a run on backup catchers!

Switch-hitting catcher Dioner Navarro has agreed to a one-year free-agent contract with the Chicago White Sox, pending a physical, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday.

Alex Avila has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the White Sox, who are looking to improve a catching position that finished ninth in the AL in batting average this past season.
Navarro, who will be 32 when the 2016 season begins, is a 12-year major league veteran. He was the Toronto Blue Jays’ every-day catcher as recently as 2014, when he batted .274 with 12 home runs and 69 RBIs. Navarro, however, lost his full-time job to Russell Martin this past season in Toronto, playing in 54 games.
