Daniel Nava reflects on becoming a millionaire (and updates approach to switch-hitting)

Not bad for a guy who once got a check for $52 during his first year as professional baseball player. Daniel Nava’s story isn’t a secret: Cut from his college team, he became equipment manager; Cut from his independent league team, he was brought back to fill out the roster; Sold to the Red Sox […]

Nava And Red Sox Agree On One-Year Deal

Daniel Nava and the Red Sox avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.85 million contract. The 31-year old fan favorite will be part of an extremely competitive outfield mix—even of a few are traded off in the near future. Along with Nava, Hanley Ramirez, Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts, Shane Victorino, Allen Craig, and Jackie Bradley, Jr. will all vie for playing time. This should be fun!

Daniel Nava May Dump Switch-Hitter Role

Daniel Nava May Dump Switch-Hitter Role

According to WEEI.com's Rob Bradford, Daniel Nava is considering abandoning switch-hitting and hitting exclusively from the left side. Nava has hit 90 points higher from the left side of the plate—so it might make sense for him to bite the bullet and give up hitting right-handed. Apparently, it's not that easy when you've been a switch-hitter in your whole post-Little league career. Said Nava, "I’ve been a switch-hitter my whole life. Hopefully I raked in Little League, but I don’t’ really remember." You might recall that Shane Victorino gave up switch-hitting in 2013 due to...

Should Daniel Nava give up switch hitting?

Daniel Nava is considering hitting exclusively left-handed. Does it make sense to give up switch-hitting? Over the course of four major league seasons, Daniel Nava has seen 337 plate appearances against left-handed pitching, taking each one from the right side of the plate. The results have been poor.

Fans love to throw this idea out there for every switch-hitter who struggles from...

Daily Red Sox Links: Daniel Nava, Rusney Castillo; Jackie Bradley, Jr.

Today's links look at Daniel Nava's willingness to stop switch "hitting" from the right side, Jackie Bradley's relative worth on the open market and Rusney's plans over the next few weeks. Daniel Nava is thinking of switching from switch hitting, which either makes him half as useful or twice as able to concentrate on making contact from one side of the plate instead of missing repeatedly from both.
