8/9 Navarro update
Dioner Navarro got some good news on Friday. The Cubs catcher was examined in Chicago and team orthopedic expert Dr. Stephen Gryzlo determined Navarro has a mild/grade one right ankle sprain, and will not need to go on the disabled list. Navarro was injured Wednesday in the seventh inning in Philadelphia after a collision at home plate with Chase Utley. The Cubs played shorthanded on Friday, and Navarro could rejoin the team on Saturday in St. Louis.
