Latest Update Farrell said he will find ways to get outfielder Daniel Nava into the lineup Sun Aug, 17, 09:44 PM
Boasts a pretty solid bat, which is enhanced by his ability to switch-hit. Is plenty patient.
Flaws: : Doesn't have much athleticism, so he's not much of a glove man or base-runner.
Nava has been one of the teams best hitters since June averaging over .300 for each month. Nava hit .303 last year for the Red Sox but started this year in a terrible slump that ultimately cost him a demotion to the minors. Given that he has shown he can hit for a solid average in the past Nava could be a decent waiver pick up for those in need of some outfield help. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Nava has struggled in August hitting just .192 after averaging .331 over June and July. The acquisition of Yoenis Cespedes has not cut into Nava's playing time but while he continues to struggle he is not worth owning outside of deeper formats. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Nava, who struggled most of the year despite coming off a career-type year last season, has begun to find his groove as he has a slash line of .409/.460/.477 with 18 hits in 44 at-bats, three doubles, eight RBI, 11 runs scored, and four walks to six strikeouts in 14 games this month. If will be tough to roster Nava in shallower leagues as he will likely be more of a platoon player unless the team does unload Jonny Gomes.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Nava has been impressive in his two starts since returning from the All-Star break, logging three hits over his first three games. The Red Sox outfielder is now slashing .355/.429/.387 in the month of July, so he should continue to see regular at-bats at least until he cools off. He makes for a decent outfield pickup for those in deep league formats, just don't expect see last years' 12 homer-66 RBI type of production because you will be sadly mistaken. Analyst: Matthew Beck
