Injuries to Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury left a major void in the Red Sox outfield to begin the 2012 campaign. The Sox struggled, getting off to a sub-par start that left fans up in arms. Enter Daniel Nava, who has shined during his most recent Big League stint, helping the Red Sox get back on track. Faithful Sox fans will recall Nava showed some real promise when he was brought up to the bigs in 2010 (he hit a Grand Slam on the first Major League pitch he ever saw) but he was sent back to Pawtucket because there simply wasn’t room for him on the roster. Coming into 2012, Boston’s outfield looked pretty crowded so Nava was barely on anybody’s radar. But injuries happen, spots open up and new guys emerge. Nava has gone 7 for 12 with 1 HR and 6 RBI in 5 games since being called up from Triple A on May 10. As of May 15 the Sox are riding a 4 game win streak. Boston is obviously in need of outfield help with 2 wounded superstars sitting in the dugout for an unknown amount of time. So, could the 29-year-old Nava be the Red Sox’s saving grace? Who knows, only time will tell. But Nava say Nava!
