6/21 Extra bases

* For the second straight game, catcher Dioner Navarro was matched up with Cubs pitcher Matt Garza. The two were teammates on the Rays, and Garza wasn’t happy with Welington Castillo after a June 11 game against the Reds when he gave up a season-high nine runs over five innings. Manager Dale Sveum said timing was more the reason Navarro was behind the plate Friday.

“It’s just a matter of having a quick turnover, playing two games in 24 hours, you’ve got to get Navarro in there,” Sveum said.

The Cubs played a night game in St. Louis Thursday, and had a day game Friday against the Astros. With Navarro in his last start Sunday against the Mets, Garza threw seven shutout innings.

* The Cubs are mulling possible roster moves, Sveum said. The team was carrying eight relievers, adding a pitcher after outfielder David DeJesus went on the disabled list last Saturday because of a sprained right shoulder.

I hope they bring Clevenger up. He can relieve Rizzo at 1st.
