Sunday Notes: Nava, Non-Qualified All-Stars, Zimmer, more

Daniel Nava spent a month in Triple-A Pawtucket earlier this season. Whether or not he merited the temporary demotion is a matter of opinion. Regardless of any stated reasons, the Red Sox outfielder was sent down partly as punishment for not appeasing the BABiP gods. Not long before Nava got the bad news, I discussed […]

Daniel Nava Shows He Belongs In Big Leagues Since Being Recalled (Video)

Boston Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava was underrated during the 2013 season. His .303 regular season average was only bested by David Ortiz, yet his name often went unmentioned. But his struggles at the beginning of 2014 — which led to an eventual demotion to Triple-A Pawtucket — showed why he may have flown under the radar in most people’s minds.
