Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald writes that Daniel Nava is a "prime candidate to be sent down" when Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns from the disabled list.
Nava was excellent for the Red Sox last season, but he's hit just .136/.239/.271 this year and has options remaining. With Jackie Bradley stabilizing the team's defense in center field, Grady Sizemore has been pushed to left and Nava apparently to Triple-A. Victorino is expected to be activated on Wednesday or Thursday.
Jackie Bradley is expected to remain the Red Sox' starting center fielder after Shane Victorino (hamstring) comes off the disabled list.
There was little doubt at this point, as Bradley has started 10 straight games in center field and Grady Sizemore is starting to settle in as the left fielder. Bradley is batting just .220/.339/.280 with no homers and two steals this season, but, according to manager John Farrell, has "solidified the defense in center field for us." Daniel Nava is hitting just .136/.239/.271 and has options remaining, making him a "prime candidate to be sent down," writes Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Saturday that Adam Eaton (hamstring) will sit out at least three games.
Eaton injured both his hamstring and ankle on Friday and then aggravated the hamstring ailment Saturday. The White Sox are calling it a mild strain, but they want to be safe and hold the outfielder out for at least a few days. "It's really right behind his knee," Ventura said. "Probably a few days just to monitor and see. It should be back in time. He just couldn't get out of the box. When he's pushing to get out of the box is when he really feels it. He can run and probably run better than most. It's just safer not to run him out there and maybe do something worse."
