Angels | Daniel Nava signs with Halos

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 15:38:23 -0800

Free-agent OF Daniel Nava (Rays) signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, Dec. 16. Nava could form a platoon in left field with OF Craig Gentry next year. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Nava bounced around last year with the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays as a reserve outfielder, and he hit .194 (27-for-139) in limited action over 60 games. He's a career .281 hitter against right-handed pitching but has very limited power and won't play everyday. He's strictly an AL-only commodity for depth if he's platooning.

Free-agent 1B Pedro Alvarez (Pirates), 1B Steve Pearce (Orioles), 1B Ike Davis (Athletics), 1B Chris Carter (Astros) and 1B/OF Daniel Nava (Rays) are of interest to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever lands at first for Milwaukee will have some value, possibly hitting between Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy.

Rays | J.P. Arencibia, Daniel Nava removed

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 13:33:19 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays C J.P. Arencibia and OF Daniel Nava were among those removed from the 40-man roster to make room for other players.

Fantasy Tip: Arencibia is a backup catcher with minimal fantasy value in most drafts, but Nava could be a decent fourth outfielder in some markets depending on where he lands.

Rays | Brandon Guyer sticks in lineup

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:35:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and hitting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Daniel Nava will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) had a big night Tuesday and could keep that momentum going against a pitcher that has struggled of late in a hitter-friendly ballpark. The move up the lineup is also enticing for Guyer in daily formats, but he's still somewhat of a deep sleeper.

Rays | James Loney to serve suspension

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:11:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney will not be in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27, because he is serving his one-game suspension. OF Daniel Nava will start at first base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should return to the lineup after his suspension. Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .194 this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Daniel Nava leading off vs. Twins

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:29:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Daniel Nava is leading off against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is day-to-day with a knee injury, so Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) enters the lineup. It isn't a bad matchup, either, as Duffey ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is making just his fourth career start Wednesday. Just note, while cheap at FantasyScore, Nava is having a dreadful season and owns a .161/.282/.183 slash line over 111 plate appearances.

Rays | Daniel Nava playing right field

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:53:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Daniel Nava will bat second and play right field against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting just .169 with seven RBIs in 89 at-bats this season. Avoid using him today in FantasyScore.

Rays | Daniel Nava starting at first base

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:26:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Daniel Nava is starting at first base and batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir Monday, Aug. 17. 1B James Loney is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) owns a career .206/.287/.292 slash line against lefties, so you'll want to aim higher at FantasyScore Monday. Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) typically doesn't play against lefties, so seasonal owners should weigh their options because he hasn't been having a banner season.

Rays | Daniel Nava starting in right field

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:39:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Nava could see semi-regular at-bats for the Rays going forward, and while he is far from a fantasy difference maker, he has shown solid contact skills while chipping in runs and RBI. He is worth a speculative grab in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, but daily players will want to avoid him against deGrom ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) Friday.

Rays | Daniel Nava claimed by Rays

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 07:49:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Nava fell off a cliff this season with just a .152 average this season, but he hit .288 combined the last two years. Nava will likely fall into a platoon role, but he could thrive in a new environment. He's an AL-only grab and a watch list player on FantasyScore.
