navarro

The St. Louis Cardinals are looking for an option at catcher after placing Yadier Molina on the disabled list with a knee injury.

One option for the Cardinals is to acquire Dioner Navarro from Chicago. The Cubs could look to deal the 29-year-old backstop who is hitting .294/.,370/.510 this season with nine home runs and 20 RBI in 57 games.

Royals acquire Jason Maxwell

The Kansas City Royals are in the odd position of trying to add at the MLB trade deadline. After pushing back offers for Ervin Santana the Royals have acquired Justin Maxwell from Houston.

Maxwell has appeared in 40 games this season with Houston. The Royals would figure to use Maxwell in a platoon role against left handed pitchers. Maxwell is hitting .302/.348/.488 against left-handers this season.
