Port Charlotte, FL (Sports Network) - Tampa Bay Rays catcher Dioner Navarro suffered a nerve contusion on his left knee during Saturday's spring training contest with the Minnesota Twins.

Twins outfielder Jacque Jones collided with the catcher after trying to score from second base on a single. Jones was called out as Navarro hung onto the ball.

The catcher then fell to the ground clutching his left leg as medical assistance quickly came to the scene. Charlotte Sports Park personnel loaded the catcher onto the cart and drove him off the field for x-rays, where the injury was determined.

Navarro's status seems positive for Opening Day, but he will be re-evaluated in a couple of days, according to team sources.

The 2008 All-Star batted .295 that season with eight homers and driving in 54 runs in 120 games. Last season, Navarro struggled, batting just .218 with eight homers and 32 RBI in 115 appearances.
