Navojoa struggled to a 31-37 mark to miss the postseason last season. Their website thus far is giving little indication of who will play for the team this winter.
We can tell you that the Mayos had an experienced infield in 2008-09, with Mexican baseball veterans Raul Lopez at first base, Jose Amador at second, Abel Martinez at third and Javier Robles at shortstop. Lopez had the best year among them, with a .257 average, four homers and 35 RBIs. Minor league vet Doug Clark hit .283 to anchor a young outfield, and hardnosed catcher Adan Munoz had a solid year, hitting .277 with a team-high eight homers and 50 RBIs.
Navojoa had a decent bullpen, with Scott Chiasson and Hansel Izquierdo combining for 13 saves, but beyond Orlando Lara and Alejandro Armenta, no starter had an ERA under 4.64.
