Red Sox Notebook: Last chapter in Daniel Nava’s Red Sox tale

For three years Daniel Nava wasn’t just a happy-to-be-here major leaguer. He was an above-average hitter for the Red Sox who spent 2013 as a top-20 outfielder against right-handed pitching.He helped them win a World Series and finally earned his first big payday, collecting $1.85 million this year in his first year of arbitration.

Red Sox designate Daniel Nava for assignment, recall Jonathan Aro

Daniel Nava's struggles have cost him his roster spot. Daniel Nava had a rough start to 2014, and while it appeared he shook it off, his 2015 has gone exponentially worse. He's run out of chances with the Red Sox because of it, as, according to Alex Speier, the team designated him for assignment on Thursday to make room on the roster for reliever Jonathan Aro. Nava has hit just .152/.260/.182 in 29 games, and his 10 contests at Triple-A Pawtucket weren't awe-inspiring, either. The 32-year-old outfielder and first baseman might not be finished, but he might also be struggling too much for...

Red Sox Designate Daniel Nava For Assignment

As we suggested might happen back in mid-July, Daniel Nava was designated for assignment by the Red Sox today. If this is truly the end of his Red Sox career, there will be many good memories. For example, Nava was just the fourth MLB ever to hit a grand slam in his first major league at bat—and just the second to do it on the very first pitch he saw in the bigs. In the 2013 Championship season, Nava hit a three-run HR to win the first Red Sox home game after the Boston Marathon bombings. He also finished eighth in the AL in batting average (.303) and fifth (.385) in on-base percentage that...

Has 'The Daniel Nava Era' Ended In Boston?

Has 'The Daniel Nava Era' Ended In Boston?

End Of 'The Daniel Nava Era'?Think hard. Remember some guy named Daniel Nava who used to play for the Boston Red Sox. You know, kind of an "extra effort" guy who got the most out of his talents? Good with fans and the media? An occasional flair for the dramatic? Two career grand slams? You know, that all-around nice guy? So, where the heck is he? Actually, Boston put Nava on the disabled list with a left thumb strain way back on May 26th. He then went on a seemingly endless "rehab assignment".  Here is ESPN's spin on the Nava situation: "The rehab assignment can last up to 20 days, and we...
