It’s still uncertain how the situation involving Chiba Lotte Marines infielder Yamaico Navarro will be resolved. Navarro was arrested Feb. 21 after bullets were found in his bag at Naha Airport. He was released by prosecutors on Feb. 23, but that doesn’t necessarily spell the end of the story.
The Marines can still take action after all the facts are gathered. For one, the team could suspend him, as the Chunichi Dragons did with pitcher Maximo Nelson (for 3 months) when he committed the same offense in 2010.
