Red Sox RF Shane Victorino scratched from Thursday's lineup
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/21/15) Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rangers. Victorino was initially penciled in to play right field and bat sixth, but he has been replaced by Daniel Nava, who is batting eighth.
Manager John Farrell said Victorino was scratched with "general soreness localized to left calf". He is hopeful Victorino will be able to return in a day or two, according to the Boston Herald.
“You know you’re going to have to run him out there a few days, back off even on days where he feels like he’s capable, almost to protect him from himself," Farrell said. "This is a little bit of an unforeseen one, but ideally you walk in the clubhouse every day knowing that there’s 25 guys at your disposal and that’s not always the case.”
Farrell: Victorino could beat out Nava for more at-bats vs. righties
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) With Daniel Nava struggling at the plate as of late, Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters that outfielder Shane Victorino seeing more time at the plate against right-handed pitchers is "not out of the realm of possibility," per the Providence Journal.
Over his last 13 games, Nava has hit .100 (3 for 30) with a double, two RBI and six walks, lowering his batting average from .240 to .164 on the season. Victorino has hit .533 (8 for 15) with a double, a home run and three walks over his last six appearances (four starts). Victorino is hitting just .156 against righties this season.
Red Sox's Daniel Nava breaks hitless skid with RBI single
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Red Sox first baseman Daniel Nava went 2 for 3 with a walk and an RBI in his team's 2-0 win over the A's Wednesday.
Nava entered the day mired in a 0-for-20 slump but managed to crack an RBI single in the second inning before reaching base two more times later in the game.
"Everybody tries to be positive. Some people like to look at the stats. Some people don't like to check them out," Nava said after the game, per MLB.com. "I don't like to check them out. I like to keep doing the same thing. There's stuff you try to address and see if you're doing something wrong, but I don't have too much going on in my swing, so sometimes I can get myself in trouble by trying to do a little more than I should be doing. We're glad we got out of here with that win."
Even with the excellent day, Nava has hit just .170/.273/.191 in 47 at-bats.
Slumping Brock Holt out, Daniel Nava in Red Sox lineup Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) With six hitless games in his last eight, Red Sox right fielder Brock Holt is set to sit Friday night in Toronto. Daniel Nava is playing the position instead.
Holt, who began the season on a 16-for-35 tear, has since managed just three hits in 27 at-bats as his average has shrunk from .457 to .317.
Nava hasn't exactly been tearing it up either. He is batting .143 on the year and hasn't had a hit since April 21.
Red Sox's Daniel Nava starting in right field Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava is batting seventh and playing right field in Sunday's matchup with the Yankees.
Nava hasn't started in the outfield in more than a week, though he did draw two starts at first base on Monday and Tuesday. He's had plenty of success against Sunday starter Adam Warren, going 6 for 11 with two walks, three doubles, one home run and seven RBI against the Yankees starter in his career. With Nava in the lineup, Brock Holt is taking a seat for just the second time in the last seven games.
The Red Sox are favorites (-138) against the Yankees at home Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.
