Questioning Efren Navarro’s 2014 season

Efren Navarro was yet another in a surprisingly long line of farmhands who played a role in returning the Angels to the postseason. He also developed a bit of a cult following, though not necessarily for his actual play. So how dumb do I feel for calling Navarro a non-prospect for the last few years? Only a little, and only part of that is just me being a stubborn, prideful jackhole...

Angels' Efren Navarro learns 1st base from his sister

If Efren Navarro makes the Los Angeles Angels' postseason roster, he can thank his glove.  There isn't much that the versatile corner guy can't snag at first base and there's rarely a play he can't make. The Angels' rookie has made only one error at first base this season, only one less than he's made in the outfield - a position he only began playing this year.  It's the glove...

Efren Navarro: the Angels’ latest outfielder-cult hero

For reasons that I have never fully grasped, Angels fans have a unique way of glomming onto an unheralded reserve outfielder and turning him into something of a cult hero among the fan base. The newest entry into this long lineage is non-prospect-first-baseman-turned-reserve-outfielder-fan-favorite (sorry, internet, I think I just used up the entire supply of hyphens), Efren Navarro...

Angels' shutout win powered by castoff's-turned-fixtures

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Like every little league pitcher in Trenton, Mich., Shoemaker always dreamed of playing for the Detroit Tigers. But he went undrafted out of Eastern Michigan University and the dream looked to be far away. Efren Navarro's lifelong dream of playing baseball in the Major Leagues also seemed far off after getting drafted in the 50th round - a round that no longer...

Navarro comes through again in win vs. Tigers

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- As the Los Angeles Angels continue to eclipse the Oakland A's, it's become clear that the Halos' ability to adjust as a club has been the key to staying in the thick of the AL West race. Friday night's game, a 2-1 win over the Tigers, showed exactly that. The Angels spoiled Drew Smyly's career outing with the help of the late-game lineup change and the bullpen...

There weren't many fans remaining at Angel Stadium, but that didn't matter. Navarro drove a pitch into center field, Mike Trout scored from second base and the Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2. A walk-off hit isn't official until a player's teammates...
