Description: Boston outfielder Daniel Nava is a career .538 hitter (7-for-13) versus Baltimore left-hander Wei-Yin Chen.
Insight: Nava was 2-for-2 on Tuesday getting on base three times. The outfielder has put up decent numbers in limited action. He is hitting .265/.342/.348 with 20 extra-base hits, 23 RBI and 36 runs in 313 at-bats.
 
9/2/2014 11:25:00 PM
Description: Boston outfielder Daniel Nava hit a three run home run to propel the Red Sox past the Yankees, 9-4.
Insight: Nava was 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs. The outfielder has put up decent numbers in limited action. He is hitting .263/.340/.345 with 18 extra-base hits, 23 RBI and 35 runs in 293 at-bats.
 
7/25/2014 10:40:00 AM
Description: Boston outfielder Daniel Nava is just 2-for-20 (.100) against Tampa Bay starter David Price.
Insight: Nava has been playing every day in July and is batting .383 in 15 games, but this matchup should be avoided.
 
Hot6/12/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Boston outfielder Daniel Nava chipped in with three hits Thursday in a win over Cleveland.
Insight: Eight of Nava's 19 hits this season have come in the last five games. His batting average is still under .200 but it looks like the 31-year-old has finally found his stroke again.
 
6/1/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have decided to call up Daniel Nava just one day after sending him back down to Triple-A.
Insight: Boston is dangerously thin at first base now that Mike Napoli and Mike Carp are both on the disabled list. Though Brock Holt should get most of the playing time at first, Nava (.130, 2 HR, 3 RBI) could see a few starts here and there.

Insight: It's the second time Nava (.130, 2 HR, 3 RBI) has been demoted this season. He logged just one hit in ten at bats while filling in for Shane Victorino in right field.
 
5/24/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have called up outfielder Daniel Nava from Triple-A Pawtucket. SOURCE: Pete Abraham, Boston Globe
Insight: He's filling in for Shane Victorino, who just went down with a strained hamstring. Nava didn't have much success in the majors earlier this season (.149 AVG in 67 at bats) but he did hit .303 with 12 HR and 66 RBI for Boston in 2013.

Description: The Red Sox have demoted outfielder Daniel Nava to Triple-A Pawtucket. SOURCE: Alex Speier, WEEI
Insight: Right-hander Alex Wilson was called up in the corresponding roster move. Nava opened the year as Boston's starting right fielder but after hitting .149 in 17 games, it's clear he wasn't up to the task. Even if we see Nava back in the big leagues this season, he won't be a fantasy option.
 
4/22/2014 6:36:00 PM
Description: Boston outfielder Daniel Nava won't be in the lineup Tuesday against New York.
Insight: Nava has had a very poor season offensively (.149, 2 HR, 3 RBI) and is unlikely to be an everyday player when Shane Victorino (strained hamstring) returns from the disabled list later this week.
 
3/31/2014 11:12:00 AM
Description: Daniel Nava will hit leadoff and start in right field Monday against Baltimore. SOURCE: Pete Abraham, Boston Globe
Insight: Nava spent most of his time hitting sixth last season but will step into the leadoff role while Shane Victorino is sidelined with a hamstring injury. His batting average (.303) was the eighth-highest in the American League last season.
 
3/28/2014 10:44:00 AM
Description: Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava could see a lot of work at the top of the Boston lineup this season.
Insight: Nava and Grady Sizemore have been the two players at the top of the Red Sox lineup the past week and manager manager John Farrell said Sizemore would bat in the middle of the lineup. Translation: Nava must be the leadoff guy. The 31-year-old is coming off a season in which he batted .303 with 12 homers, 66 RBI, 77 runs and an .830 OPS in 134 games.
 
2/28/2014 8:04:00 PM
Description: According to Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald, Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava (neck) will play Saturday.
Insight: Nava will be making his Grapefruit League debut after sitting out this week with a pinched nerve in his neck. The 31-year-old is coming off a season in which he batted .303 with 12 homers, 66 RBI, 77 runs and an .830 OPS in 134 games. He played primarily against lefties and will do so again this season.
 
10/27/2013 6:04:00 PM
Description: Daniel Nava will again get the start in left field Sunday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Nava went 1-for-4 in Game 3 with a couple of RBI. The 30-year-old finished eighth in the American League with a .303 average during the regular season.
 
10/25/2013 6:41:00 PM
Description: Daniel Nava will start in left field for the Red Sox in Game 3 of the World Series against the Cardinals, according to Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com.
Insight: Jonny Gomes started the first two games of the series but Busch Stadium's left field is much more demanding than Fenway Park's. With right-hander Joe Kelly on the mound for the Cardinals, it's a no-brainer to start the lefty-swinging Nava and have Gomes available to pinch-hit against a lefty reliever.
 
10/17/2013 6:41:00 PM
Description: Boston left fielder Daniel Nava isn't starting Game 5 against the Tigers.
Insight: Nava went 1-for-3 in last night's 7-3 loss. There's a good chance he'll see action as a pinch-hitter later in the game.
 
10/16/2013 3:49:00 PM
Description: Daniel Nava is hitting sixth and starting in left field Wednesday against Detroit.
Insight: It's a no-brainer given Nava's history against Doug Fister (.417 career average). Jonny Gomes, Boston's starter in left field for Games 2 and 3, will take a seat in Game 4.
 
10/16/2013 11:12:00 AM
Description: Boston left fielder Daniel Nava hasn't played since Game 1 but if he does get the start in Game 4, he could post big numbers versus Tigers starter Doug Fister.
Insight: Nava is 5-for-12 in his career against Fister. He's had a quiet postseason, delivering just two hits in 11 trips to the plate (three walks).
 
10/13/2013 10:18:00 AM
Description: Red Sox left fielder Daniel Nava isn't expected to start Sunday against the Tigers. SOURCE: WEEI
Insight: Nava was actually the only player to have a hit against Detroit in Game 1. He'll take a seat in favor of Johnny Gomes, who holds a .333 lifetime average versus Max Scherzer.
 
10/6/2013 7:11:00 PM
Description: Boston left fielder Daniel Nava is expected to start Monday in Game 3 of the ALDS versus Tampa Bay.
Insight: Jonny Gomes (.247, 13 HR, 52 RBI) has started the first two games with lefties Matt Moore and David Price on the mound. Nava hit .303 with 12 homers, 66 RBI, 77 runs and an .831 OPS in 134 games this season.
 
10/5/2013 3:58:00 PM
Description: Boston left fielder Daniel Nava won't start Saturday against the Rays.
Insight: Jonny Gomes (.247, 13 HR, 52 RBI) will start in left field for the second game in a row. Gomes usually starts against lefties so this was to be expected. Nava should see more playing time when the series returns to Tampa Bay.
