According to the St. Petersburg Times, Rays catcher Dioner Navarro is being sued by his former agent for breach of contract. From the Times’ Marc Topkin:
In the suit, filed last week in Hillsborough Circuit Court, Startrust
claims Navarro and his wife owe fees and expenses dating back to 2005
and seeks reimbursement, including money loaned Sherley Navarro to cover
her cell phone and data card bills.
Let’s hope everything is settled civilly and the suit does not carry into the regular season. Navarro, who hit just .218/.261/.322 last year, has a whole lot of proving to do in 2010. The Rays brought in Kelly Shoppach this winter and it’s safe to say that Navarro’s handle on the starting catching gig in Tampa is shaky at best.
