Nava (back strain) was placed on the 60-day DL on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Nava last played on Sept. 3, so this means the end of his 2017 season -- his final year before free agency. He hit .301/.393/.421 with four home runs in 214 plate appearances and was worth one win over a replacement player (according to FanGraphs). While his season didn't end in an ideal way, he performed well while on the field. It remains to be seen if he will be offered a big-league deal from a team this offseason or if he will have to settle for a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Nava (back) was activated from the DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Now that Nava has returned to full health, he'll likely be used as a reserve option in the Phillies' outfield. Nava, who's appeared in 72 games this season, currently owns a .298 batting average and .817 OPS.

Nava was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a lower back strain, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when the injury cropped up on Nava, but it's apparently bothersome enough to require a trip to the DL. While he remains without a timetable for his return, the move is retroactive to Aug. 12, so he'll be eligible to rejoin the Phillies on Aug. 22 should he be ready. Cameron Perkins was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Nava is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets, Ryan Lawrence of PhillyVoice.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava will find himself on the bench for a fifth consecutive contest with the recent promotion of prospect Rhys Hoskins from Triple-A Lehigh Valley having pushed the veteran out of regular starting duties in the corner outfield. Though Nava is batting an outstanding .298/.390/.427 over 200 plate appearances this season, his standing as a 34-year-old on an expiring contract gives the rebuilding Phillies little incentive to hand him to deploy him in an everyday role.

Nava is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Nava will hit the bench following three consecutive starts, opening up a turn in the lineup for Cameron Perkins. It's still expected that Nava will retain something close to an everyday role for as long as Aaron Altherr (hamstring) remains on the disabled list, giving the veteran some appeal in deeper formats while he maintains an excellent .302/.394/.432 batting line on the season.

Nava will start in left field and bat third Tuesday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

It's the third straight start for Nava, with all of his assignments coming at different positions. He should at least be in store for a semi-regular role in the corner outfield for the duration of Aaron Altherr's (hamstring) stay on the disabled list, giving Nava some value in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues. Nava has gone 10-for-27 with four extra-base hits since the All-Star break, boosting his season line to a robust .311/.404/.445 over 193 plate appearances.

Nava went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 8-5 loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Nava was getting a start in right field with Aaron Altherr on the disabled list with a hamstring strain. He'll likely rotate with Hyun Soo Kim and Cameron Perkins while Altherr is sidelined. Nava is also a candidate to be moved in a waiver trade this month given his strong performance in a reserve role this season.

Nava (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Nava will return from the disabled list in order to add outfield depth to the Phillies. He ultimately missed the minimum 10 days due to his hamstring strain, but now he'll likely return to a reserve role with Nick Williams, Aaron Altherr and Odubel Herrera locked into starting outfield spots.

Nava (hamstring) is expected to come off the disabled list Wednesday, Matt Gelb of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nava has been sidelined since July 22 when he strained his hamstring. The Phillies optioned Cameron Perkins to Triple-A on Tuesday in anticipation of activating Nava from the DL. He should see a few starts a week with the Phillies focused on getting at-bats for their young outfielders.
