Jaso Up, Balfour Home for Bereavement
Dioner Navarro won’t go on the DL just yet, but Triple-A catcher John Jaso will be with the team Sunday. Putting Navarro on the DL after he had to leave the game Saturday night didn’t become an issue because reliever Grant Balfour went on the bereavement list as he had to go to Australia to attend a family funeral.
The Rays can now monitor Navarro’s condition over the break. There is no word yet on Navarro’s condition just yet, but his agent told reporters that his client was fine. Meanwhile, Balfour is expected to be back with the team by the time the Rays play the Royals Friday night in Kansas City.
