News: Nava went 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Yankees. Impact: Nava's batting average has yet to creep over the .200 mark and he's struck out 10 times compared to two walks. There's definitely a struggle going on and you may want to hold him out until he gets back on track.(RotoWire, )

News: Nava, who was given a night off Friday, is back in the starting lineup Saturday, playing right field and batting second in the order, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com. Impact: This will be the fifth different spot in the batting order for Nava, who hasn't hit well to open the season. The man who had a .385 on-base percentage last season was supposed to be Boston's primary leadoff hitter in 2014, but he's batting just .139 with a .205 OBP in nine games. He's shown some life of late, including a homer in his last game, but not enough to get back to the top of the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Nava homered in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Yanks. Impact: Maybe this will get him going since he owns a sickly .455 OPS.(STATS, 4:17pm)
Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Nava was dropped from leadoff to fifth in the batting order in Thursday night's loss to the Yankees. He went 1-for-4 with his first homer of the season. Impact: Nava's struggled out of the gate, and manager John Farrell told the Providence Journal that dropping him in the order was an effort to jumpstart Nava. Farrell added that Nava will eventually get back to the top spot.(RotoWire, )

News: Nava isn't in the Red Sox's lineup Tuesday versus the Rangers. Impact: With Texas sending out lefty Martin Perez, Nava will yield left field to Jonny Gomes, who will bat leadoff. Meanwhile, Nava has tallied a mere four hits in 29 at-bats, though he legged out his first extra-base hit of the season (a double) Sunday.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Nava went 1-for-3 with a walk, a hit-by-pitch, and an RBI in Monday night's win over Texas. The walk was his first of the season. Impact: Nava's off to a slow start atop Boston's batting order, but has hit the ball hard the last two games.(RotoWire, )

News: Nava was dropped to third in the batting order, taking the place of David Ortiz, who was given a planned day off due to lingering calf soreness. Impact: Nava continued his slow start Saturday, going 0-for-5 in an extra-inning loss to the Brewers. He's 2-for-22 without a walk in five games.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Nava was 0-for-4 while batting leadoff in Friday's home-opening loss to the Brewers. Through four games, he's hitting .118 (2-for-17). Impact: The good news is that Nava's name has been in the lineup every day; the bad news is that he hasn't drawn a walk. Manager John Farrell has used Nava as the leadoff hitter in three of the four games played, but we're not seeing his elite on-base ability in the small sample size thus far.(RotoWire, )

News: Nava started in place of the injured Shane Victorino (hamstring) in right field in Monday's opener in Baltimore. He hit leadoff and went 0-for-5 in a 2-1 loss to the Orioles. Impact: Nava is the first choice to hit leadoff for Boston, though there will be days when he's platooned out of the lineup. With Victorino on the disabled list, Nava should find himself in the lineup pretty much every day, whether it be left or right field.(RotoWire, )
