Red Sox | Daneil Nava starting vs. Texas

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:28:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and batting eighth against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) went 1-for-2 Wednesday, May 20, and his batting average jumped 13 points to .164. He is nothing more than a desperation flier in FantasyScore contests at this point.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino still out

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:04:28 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21. OF Daniel Nava is batting eighth and playing right field Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has now started just one of the last five games, and it is significant Thursday because a lefty is on the hill. Seasonal owners should be considering a replacement for him, if they haven't already dropped him. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier in FantasyScore contests.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino sitting again vs. Texas

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:54:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 20. OF Daniel Nava is batting sixth and playing right field Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is off to a terrible start at the plate (.212/.349/.308 slash line with just six runs, a home run and three RBI), and it is his second consecutive game riding pine. His value is fading. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), somehow, has been even worse. Avoid both in all fantasy formats until either strings together a solid run at the dish, and they may end up platooning and somewhat curbing each other's value. Given their combined struggles, Rusney Castillo projects to trump both soon, although, Manager John Farrell said "nothing is imminent" on that front Wednesday.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava starting in RF

Tue, 19 May 2015 14:41:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Tuesday, May 19. OF Shane Victorino is sitting the bench.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox are occasionally resting Victorino in order to keep him fresh. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hasn't done much of anything with the bat this year, hitting just .160 (8-for-50) with no homers and seven RBI. Nava has been much better in his career against right-handers, but until we see signs of life from the reserve outfielder, it's best to avoid him at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli not in starting lineup

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:50:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. OF Daniel Nava is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .136 (6-for-44) with no home runs and six RBI this year, and with Gray holding lefty hitters to a .189/.277/.244 slash line in 2015, Nava becomes a commodity to avoid at FantasyScore this afternoon.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava starting vs. Jay Birds

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:40:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and batting fifth against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is stuck in a 2-for-32 funk and cannot be started with confidence in FantasyScore contests. However, corrective regression is going to take place sooner than later, so there is high-risk, high-reward appeal to Nava in daily contests, especially at his low cap hit.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli still sick

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 11:19:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. OF Daniel Nava is starting at first base again and hitting sixth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hasn't done much in 2015 yet, hitting only .167 (6-for-36) with six RBI. He hit righties well in 2014, though, going 88-for-300 (.293) with all four of his home runs. Nava is an under-the-radar FantasyScore selection while hitting in the middle of a potent lineup.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava in starting lineup

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:36:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava will be the starting first baseman against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has picked up only one hit in his last eight games and likely is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava starting in right field

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:21:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava is starting in right field and batting seventh against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is an excellent low-priced play for FantasyScore owners Friday. His spot in the order should yield a few RBI opportunities, and he has a career .291 batting average against right-handed pitchers.
