It looks like Russell Martin and the Dodgers are about to part ways. The Dodgers have been courting free-agent catcher Dioner Navarro of the Tampa Bay Rays. If the Dodgers sign Navarro, it would mean Martin, who is also a free agent and two-time All-Star for the Dodgers, would be out of a job in Los Angeles.
Navarro and Rod Barrajas would most likely split time as the catcher for the Dodgers. Navarro, a one-time Dodger who was traded to the Rays to make room for Martin four years ago, hit .194 with one home run and seven RBIs for the Rays last year. Navarro also spent time in the minor leagues before being recalled to the Rays for the playoff stretch.
