Red Sox | Daniel Nava update

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 06:01:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava (thumb) took batting practice over the weekend and will continue to do so this week. He could go on a rehab assignment by the end of the road trip Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Nava is in a crowded outfield situation but has hit for a decent average with consistent playing time. Monitor his progress and keep him in mind when he's in there on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava to DL

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:40:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava (thumb) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left thumb strain Thursday, May 28. The move is retroactive to May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Nava can be dumbed in all formats, as he was hitting just .159 (10-for-63) on the season. Carlos Peguero is now on Boston's active roster after being acquired in a trade yesterday, and he'll provide outfield depth. He'll be a low-priced FantasyScore option, but he's a weak play when in the starting lineup.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:59:46 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. OF Daniel Nava will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Nava ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting a little better this month but still has a .167 batting average this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Daneil Nava starting vs. Texas

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:28:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and batting eighth against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 1-for-2 Wednesday, May 20, and his batting average jumped 13 points to .164. He is nothing more than a desperation flier in FantasyScore contests at this point.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino still out

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:04:28 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21. OF Daniel Nava is batting eighth and playing right field Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has now started just one of the last five games, and it is significant Thursday because a lefty is on the hill. Seasonal owners should be considering a replacement for him, if they haven't already dropped him. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier in FantasyScore contests.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino sitting again vs. Texas

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:54:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 20. OF Daniel Nava is batting sixth and playing right field Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is off to a terrible start at the plate (.212/.349/.308 slash line with just six runs, a home run and three RBI), and it is his second consecutive game riding pine. His value is fading. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), somehow, has been even worse. Avoid both in all fantasy formats until either strings together a solid run at the dish, and they may end up platooning and somewhat curbing each other's value. Given their combined struggles, Rusney Castillo projects to trump both soon, although, Manager John Farrell said "nothing is imminent" on that front Wednesday.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava starting in RF

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:41:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Tuesday, May 19. OF Shane Victorino is sitting the bench.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox are occasionally resting Victorino in order to keep him fresh. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hasn't done much of anything with the bat this year, hitting just .160 (8-for-50) with no homers and seven RBI. Nava has been much better in his career against right-handers, but until we see signs of life from the reserve outfielder, it's best to avoid him at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava starting

Sat, 16 May 2015 15:56:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava will start at first base and bat seventh in the order Saturday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a switch hitter with a career .288 batting average against right-handed pitchers. That average can be ignored against King Felix, as can Nava on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli not in starting lineup

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:50:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. OF Daniel Nava is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .136 (6-for-44) with no home runs and six RBI this year, and with Gray holding lefty hitters to a .189/.277/.244 slash line in 2015, Nava becomes a commodity to avoid at FantasyScore this afternoon.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava starting vs. Jay Birds

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:40:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and batting fifth against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is stuck in a 2-for-32 funk and cannot be started with confidence in FantasyScore contests. However, corrective regression is going to take place sooner than later, so there is high-risk, high-reward appeal to Nava in daily contests, especially at his low cap hit.
