DANIEL NAVA RUMORS & GOSSIP

'Nava-Gating' From Left Side Of The Plate Only

Daniel NavaDaniel Nava is making a big change. In 2015, he will hit only from the left side of the plate—giving up years of switch-hitting.

Hello, Daniel Nava; Goodbye, Drake Britton

I was pretty happy to see Daniel Nava re-up with the Sox. In a world full of professional athletes who seem to swill too often from the douchiness jug, Nava is a legitimate good guy — someone who seems to appreciate every opportunity he gets to slip on the uniform and take the field. Last year, when he was sent to the minors, he took it in stride, never whining or grandstanding...

Daniel Nava May Dump Switch-Hitter Role

According to WEEI.com's Rob Bradford, Daniel Nava is considering abandoning switch-hitting and hitting exclusively from the left side. Nava has hit 90 points higher from the left side of the plate—so it might make sense for him to bite the bullet and give up hitting right-handed. Apparently, it's not that easy when you've been a switch-hitter in your whole post-Little league career...

Watch: Daniel Nava picked off after lazy baserunning

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava’s lack of hustle was a real momentum-killer during the team’s 5-1 loss to the Yankees. In the fifth inning of the game, with NYY leading, 2-0, Nava singled to center and was looking to start a potential rally and help the Sox get on the board. But after taking a pretty big lead at first base, he decided to just stroll back toward the bag as Hiroki...
