Nava was designated for assignment Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move was made in order to make room on the 40-man roster for Shane Robinson, who came off the DL Saturday. Nava will now be available to be picked up by another big league club during his waiver period, but if that doesn't happen, he'll likely be assigned to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Nava is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals, the Los Angeles Times' Pedro Moura reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels are so desperate for production from their left field spot that utility infielder Gregorio Petit will get the nod in left Wednesday. Nava has a .611 OPS on the season and should be unowned in the vast majority of formats.

Nava is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's contest with Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Nava is sitting his third game out in the Angels' last six as Todd Cunningham gets the start in left and bats ninth. Nava came into July barely above the mendoza line but after going 8-for-32 (.250) this month, he's raised his average (.231) and OBP (.305) to slightly healthier numbers.

Nava is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rangers, Eric Kay of the Angels' front office reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava will get a day off after starting the past two games against the Rangers. In his place, Todd Cunningham earns the start in left field, batting ninth. Nava will likely be back in the lineup for the Angels next game in Houston on Friday.

Nava is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava currently tops the depth chart for the Angels in left field, but his hold on the starting job is still fairly loose, given his uninspiring .247/.330/.323 batting line on the campaign. With only one at-bat against left-handed pitching this season, the switch-hitting Nava clearly isn't being viewed as much more than a strong-side platoon player, thereby limiting his number of starts each week.

Nava is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava typically starts in left field against right-handed pitchers, but he'll give way to Ji-Man Choi for Sunday's matchup against Chris Tillman. Nava otherwise enters the All-Star break on a high note, with four RBI in his last two games.

Nava (knee) is back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava's left Tuesday's game in Tampa Bay due to his patellar tendinitis flaring up again. He had been dealing with the injury ever since, and will make a return to the lineup after spending the past two days out. For Friday's game against Ubaldo Jimenez and the Orioles, Nava will play in left while batting in the six spot in the order.

Nava (knee) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Nava has been dealing with patellar tendinitis since he was forced to leave Tuesday's game with the ailment, but it was reported Wednesday that the issue is not believed to be very serious. He may simply be making way for the right-handed Jefry Marte in left field due to the fact the Rays are running out lefty Blake Snell.

Nava (knee) is not in Wednesday's lineup, but his injury is not believed to be anything serious, Jeff Fletcher of the OC Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava's patellar tendinitis flared up while playing on the turf in Tampa, but he said he left the game quickly enough that the tendinitis subsided. The Angels are holding him out Wednesday as a precaution, but at this point a DL stint does not appear to be in Nava's future.

Nava (knee) is out of Wednesday's lineup, the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports.

EDGE Analysis

His patellar tendinitis flared up Tuesday, forcing him from the game. The Angels are very thin in left field, as Jefry Marte, who is still banged up, was forced into the lineup Wednesday. A DL stint has not been ruled out for Nava.
