Hello Royals faithful. Thought you might wanna know about Rey Navarro from the Dbacks' fans' perspective. IHateSouthBend, our resident minors guru, ranked him #24 in our top 40 coming into this season, and had this to say:
24) SS Reynaldo Navarro. The kid is even younger than Perez, his 20th birthday having been December 22, and is a switch-hitting fast-running plus-defender at short, ranked by BA as the best infield defender in the D-Backs system, even above Pedro Ciriaco. There is some ridiculous potential to be found in Navarro, although he has to figure a few things out, like how to draw more walks (although his allergy is not as severe as Ciriaco's). Has lots of time to develop, and could be the hidden middle infield gem of our system. A good year offensively repeating at Mid-A would do wonders for Navarro's stock.
