Nava was moved up to second in the batting order and went 2-for-3 with a walk and three RBI in Sunday's win over Kansas City. Since being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, Nava's hitting .337 with a .421 on-base percentage.
Nava's worked his way into a lefty-righty split with Jonny Gomes in left field. As he's heated up, the Red Sox are less desperate to find outfield help. They've scrapped plans to have Will Middlebrooks take reps out there and Mookie Betts has been returned to the minors to work on his outfield defense.
