Angels designated OF Daniel Nava for assignment.

Jul 30 - 6:52 PM

Angels activated OF Daniel Nava from the 15-day disabled list.

Jun 12 - 1:52 PM

Daniel Nava (groin) is beginning baseball activities this week.

Barring a setback, Nava could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend. The 33-year-old has been limited to just 17 games this season due to groin and knee injuries.
Jun 6 - 8:31 PM

Angels placed OF Daniel Nava on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin.

Nava suffered the groin strain Monday night against the Dodgers. He's hoping to be ready for activation when first eligible, but these can be month-long injuries for outfielders. Shane Robinson replaced Nava on Monday and is starting in left field Tuesday. He carries no fantasy relevance, even in an elevated role.
May 17 - 7:01 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said that Daniel Nava is likely headed to the disabled list with a groin injury.

Nava was forced to exit Monday's game with a left groin strain and will go for an MRI on Tuesday. This could be his second DL stint this season, as he already missed time with left patella tendinitis.
May 17 - 8:12 AM

Daniel Nava exited Monday's game against the Dodgers in the fifth inning for an unspecified reason.

Nava exited the game after flying out to end the top of the fifth inning. Shane Robinson replaced him in left field. There was no obvious sign of injury, but the Angels should pass along an update soon.
May 17 - 12:04 AM

Daniel Nava went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs on Sunday as the Angels topped the Mariners 3-0 in Seattle.

In what had been an extreme pitcher's duel all afternoon, Nava came through with a two-run single off Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning that broke the game open. He's now hitting .238/.304/.333 with a homer and six RBI through his first 46 plate appearances.
May 15 - 8:52 PM

Daniel Nava went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

Nava missed a few weeks with a knee injury before the Angels activated him from the disabled list early in May. On Thursday, he came through with his first homer of the season, swatting it off Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright in the fourth inning. The veteran outfielder holds a career triple-slash of .264/.356/.379 and does not make for an interesting fantasy option.
May 13 - 2:11 AM

Angels activated OF Daniel Nava from the 15-day disabled list.

Nava is back in the Angels starting lineup and batting second on Friday night. Before hitting the shelf on April 16, he was hitting .286/.333/.286 with one RBI in his first 15 plate appearances.
May 6 - 9:18 PM

Daniel Nava (knee) is expected to rejoin the Angels on Friday.

And manager Mike Scioscia confirmed Wednesday that Nava will resume serving as the Angels' primary left fielder, which probably means Rafael Ortega is headed back to Triple-A. Nava has been on the disabled list since April 16 with left patella tendinitis.
May 4 - 1:36 PM

Daniel Nava (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Class-A Inland Empire on Monday.

Nava is only expected to need a couple of games to get his timing back before he's deemed ready to rejoin the Angels. His return could force Rafael Ortega back to Triple-A.
May 1 - 10:41 PM

Daniel Nava (knee) is expected to begin a rehab assignment early next week.

It's good timing for the Angels with Craig Gentry battling back stiffness. Nava has sat out the last two weeks with left knee tendinitis but has been working out in Arizona and should begin a rehab assignment any day now. He was hitting .286 before the injury.
Apr 30 - 8:21 PM

Daniel Nava (knee) swung a bat on Saturday.

He's been out with left knee tendinitis but said things are finally "headed in the right direction." Nava is eligible to come off the disabled list on May 1 but might need more time. Nava's replacements Craig Gentry and Rafael Ortega have hit a combined .111 during his absence.
