Red Sox will find at-bats for Daniel Nava


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Even with Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig (foot) getting closer to a return, Boston manager John Farrell said Sunday he will find ways to get outfielder Daniel Nava into the lineup, per MLB.com.

"For as well as he's swinging the bat, we're going to find a way to get him in the lineup," Farrell said. "Much like we did with Brock Holt earlier, there will be a way we can accommodate all this."

Despite the lack of power, Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday the 31-year-old outfielder has a place in the team's lineup.

"He’s a pretty darn dependable left-handed hitting outfielder and we view him as that. We value him," Farrell said, per ESPN. "There’s nothing that’s indicating his time here is changing as we go forward."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"As long as I'm in the lineup, I don't care if I hit ninth, it doesn't matter," he told ESPN.

Nava admitted that he would need to work on aspects of his game if he was placed at the top of the order, but not too drastically.

"I'm not going to change my approach," he said. "My approach is similar to what a leadoff guy is. Obviously, first time around [the order] that's when you're a leadoff hitter, then after that the situation dictates the type of at-bat you take."
