White Sox Trade Dioner Navarro To Blue Jays

(CBS) The White Sox have traded catcher Dioner Navarro to the Blue Jays in exchange for minor league pitcher Colton Turner.

Turner, 25, has been assigned to Double-A Birmingham. To fill Navarro's roster spot, the White Sox activated catcher Alex Avila from the disabled list.

Turner is 12-9 with a 2.76 ERA and 200 strikeouts in 107 games and 232 1/3 innings over five seasons in the Blue Jays minor league system.

The 32-year-old Navarro was hitting .210 with six home runs and 32 RBIs this season. He played for Toronto in 2014 and 2015.

Avila returns after a lengthy disabled list stint. He was hitting .236 in 41 games prior to the hamstring injury.

The White Sox continue a four-game series at U.S. Cellular Field on Friday when they host the Mariners.
