Daniel Nava continues to swing a hot bat going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
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
Carl Crawford exited Monday night's game with tightness in his right side.
It was only a matter of time before the glass-made Crawford cracked in some capacity. It's unknown whether or not he'll need a DL stint to rid him of the tightness, but if he does Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero are likely to fill in for him. Guerrero has been among the hottest hitters in baseball, in a limited role, and would become mixed league relevant if/when he finds himself in the lineup. Don Mattingly, however, doesn't appear to be Guerrero's biggest fan. Let's hope he's not pigeon-holed to pinch-hitting duties. Analysis: Spencer Silva
