Latest Update Nava continues to swing a hot bat Thu Jul, 24, 02:09 AM
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, 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
Nava batted just .168 with two homers and three RBI in 95 at-bats before his demotion, so a drastic chance will be needed if he wants to make a splash with the Red Sox later in the season. Even if promoted at a later date it is hard to believe he will receive enough at-bats to warrant fantasy consideration. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Super Nava is replacing Mike Carp on the active roster. He was coming a breakout 2013 season, but struggled to begin the season and was sent down. Nava is a platoon player that has minimal fantasy value.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
