Nava became a free agent after declining his outright assignment to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Nava batted just .223 between brief stints with the Angels and Royals this season, so it comes as no surprise that the Royals brass didn't deem him worthy of a 40-man roster spot. The 33-year-old does have nice defensive versatility in the outfield, but his age and his propensity to strike out will make it tough for him to garner consideration at the major league level.

Nava was called up by the Royals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Nava has steadily regressed at the plate since his strong 2013 campaign with Boston, culminating in a .235/.309/.303 showing with the Angels this season prior to his release. He can switch hit but is limited defensively and the at-bats figure to be few and far between over the remaining weeks.

Nava was placed on the Temporarily Inactive List on Saturday, MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava and his wife are expecting their child this weekend, so the Royals deactivated him in order to let him spend time with his family. He will likely rejoin the Royals at some point next week.

Nava was acquired by the Royals on Monday and assigned to Triple-A Omaha, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava quickly found a new home after being designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday. The switch-hitting outfielder has appeared in 45 major league games this season, batting .235 with one home run and 13 RBI. He likely serves as depth for a crowded Kansas City outfield, but could provide an interesting call-up when they enter the home stretch of the season.

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.
