Navarro Not Sure About Tuesday

Here I am usurping again after gulping down the first of what I’m sure will be three or four LaSpada’s cheesesteaks:
Catcher Dioner Navarro said in Clearwater that his sore left hamstring is feeling much better, but he’s not so sure that he’ll return to the lineup Tuesday. In fact, if he had to guess, Navarro said he’s more likely to come back later in the week.
Navarro re-emphasized that the right hamstring injury that knocked him out at the start of 2006 with the Dodgers was much more severe than this one. He was on crutches for a week after that one, and he’s been walking on his own since suffering this one on March 8.
He said there are still a few more “game situation” tests that need to be performed before he’s given the all clear.
