RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

For the second time in three seasons, Nava gave the Red Sox an unexpected lift. He started off very well by hitting .302 with an .896 OPS in May and June, before slumping in July and sustaining a wrist injury in August. The Red Sox understand that Nava cannot be exposed in the starting lineup for a long stretch of time, so at best, he will hook on as a fourth or fifth outfielder. The offseason additions of Jonny Gomes and Shane Victorino pushes Nava further down the outfield depth chart. There are still moving parts to Boston's outfield situation: will Jacoby Ellsbury be around all of 2013? Will they sign another outfielder beyond Gomes and Victorino? Plus, there is competition between Nava and Ryan Kalish for a depth job. The organization appreciates his professional effort, a trait in little supply on this franchise the last couple of years, and he has improved his defense. Optimally, for Boston, Nava is serving in a backup role.

2011

The Daniel Nava story -- from Independent League player to hitting a grand slam on his first major-league pitch -- was one of the nicer moments for the Red Sox in 2010, but that's likely the final chapter for him in Boston. He's certainly hit at every minor league stop and started that way in Boston, but major league pitchers eventually figured him out, as Nava hit just .185 (.235 slugging) following the All-Star break. If the Red Sox avoid the outfield injuries they sustained in 2010, Nava will not be on the active roster in 2011.

2010

Nava, an undrafted free agent that toiled in the independent leagues, has worked his way up to Triple-A at age 27. His slight build has worked against him every step of the way, but Nava has done nothing but hit since joining the Red Sox organization, though he's always been 2-3 years older than the competition. Heading into 2010, Nava needs to put some polish on his outfield defense and become more consitent from both sides of the plate (he's a switch hitter).
