Oswaldo Ramsés Navarro [nah-vahr'-o] (born October 2, 1984 in Villa de Cura, Venezuela) is a former Major League Baseball shortstop. He was signed by the Seattle Mariners as a non-drafted free agent out of Venezuela on August 12, 2001.

Navarro was a September call-up for the Mariners in 2006. In his first at-bat, he recorded a hit on a bunt. He was granted free agency in 2009 and signed a minor league contract with the Houston Astros on December 8, 2009.

Navarro was called up to the Astros on May 20, 2010 following the release of Kaz Matsui.[1] On September 16, Navarro was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Enerio Del Rosario. After clearing waivers, Navarro was outrighted to the Astros' AAA affiliate.

On March 17, 2012, Navarro signed a minor league deal with the New York Mets. Navarro spent the year at Double-A Binghamton before retiring.[2]
