Daniel Nava 1B/LF.. BOS 1 Day

Daniel Nava went 1-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Orioles.

Nava, who started in right field and batted second Friday, is hitting just .136 (8-for-59) through 15 games this season. Jackie Bradley's roster spot appears safe, so Nava or Mike Carp could be the odd man out when Shane Victorino (hamstring) comes off the disabled list. Carp went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run scored on Friday night.

It's the first contribution he's made this season. Not only is Nava hitting just .139, but he has a 10/1 K/BB ratio in 36 at-bats. He could lose at-bats to Jonny Gomes and Mike Carp if he doesn't pull out of it soon.

Daniel Nava went 0-for-5 as Boston's leadoff man in Monday's loss.

The Red Sox didn't want to test Grady Sizemore with the leadoff spot right away, but we'll see how long that will last. Nava will get on base against righties, so he's hardly a bad choice for the leadoff spot. That said, he's not the Red Sox's ideal option, either.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday that Daniel Nava could see some time in center field by the end of spring training.

Farrell said he doesn't want to invite speculation on what that might mean, so don't take this as a sign that Jackie Bradley, Jr. will begin the year in the minor leagues. However, it's clear that Grady Sizemore's impressive spring has changed things.

Daniel Nava is still being slowed by a sore neck.

Nava has been able to do defensive drills, but he'll refrain from hitting for a few more days. The minor soreness should not affect his status for the beginning of the 2014 regular season. Nava, 31, batted .303/.385/.445 with 12 home runs and 66 RBI in 134 games last year and is expected to start in left field for Boston in 2014.
