Phillies activated OF Daniel Nava from the 10-day disabled list.

Nava missed the minimum 10 days while recovering from a hamstring strain. Prior to his landing on the disabled list, the veteran outfielder was hitting a respectable .303/.400/.408 in 180 plate appearances.
Aug 2 - 6:48 PM

Phillies placed OF Daniel Nava on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to July 23, with a hamstring strain.

That essentially rules out the possibility that he will be traded ahead of the July 31 non-wavier deadline. Nava, an impending free agent, has posted a surprising .303/.400/.408 batting line across 180 plate appearances this season for Philadelphia.
Jul 26 - 3:00 PM

Daniel Nava went 3-for-4 and scored a run in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates.

He singled in the first inning and rode home on a Maikel Franco home run. He doubled in the seventh but was left stranded. The 34-year-old veteran also drew a walk in the ballgame. Nava has raked at the plate when given a chance to play. He is slashing .313/.408/.430 with three homers and 14 RBI in 152 plate appearances.
Jul 5 - 10:31 PM

Daniel Nava went 1-for-3 plus a walk and a run scored as the Phillies shut out the Pirates on Monday.

Nava continues to perform while hitting atop the Phillies' lineup, and Monday was no exception. He singled to start the game then rode home on a two-run blast by Freddy Galvis to give the Phillies an early lead they wouldn't relinquish. The veteran outfielder is slashing .301/.397/.415 with three homers and 14 RBI in 146 plate appearances.
Jul 3 - 9:55 PM

Daniel Nava went 3-for-5 with a two-run single in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Nava hit a two-run single in the eighth to give the Phillies a 7-1 advantage. In 53 games this season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .300/.394/.417 with three homers and 15 RBI.
Jul 2 - 4:14 PM

Daniel Nava went 2-for-3 with a walk and the Phillies' only RBI of the game Monday against the Diamondbacks.

The Phillies wanted to give Cam Perkins an extended look after dumping Michael Saunders, but he's been ice cold since getting the call, opening the door for Nava to go back to starting against righties. Perkins can continue to play versus lefties and fill in throughout the outfield.
Jun 26 - 10:51 PM

Phillies activated OF Daniel Nava from the 10-day disabled list.

The 34-year-old outfielder returned prior to Friday's game where he grounded out as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning. He's hitting an impressive .300/.419/.450 with two homers and eight RBI this season, but could have difficulty finding at-bats in a crowded Phillies' outfield.
Jun 3 - 8:33 AM

Daniel Nava (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Nava suffered a left hamstring strain last weekend, but it shouldn't be long before he rejoins the Phillies. The 34-year-old was batting .305/.425/.458 with two homers over 29 games prior to the injury.
May 29 - 10:06 AM

Phillies placed OF Daniel Nava on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21, with a left hamstring strain.

Nava suffered the injury last Friday and will require an extended absence. The Phillies have called up left-hander Adam Morgan to take his place on the active roster.
May 23 - 3:45 PM

Daniel Nava went 2-for-3 with two home runs and three RBI in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Reds.

Nava keyed in on Rookie Davis in this one, smashing a solo home run into a sea of empty seats at Great American Ballpark in the first inning and a two-run shot in the third inning on a gloomy, chill day in Cincinnati. While the veteran outfielder managed to crack the Opening Day roster as a bench option, he owns a career triple-slash of .262/.353/.375 in 1,518 at-bats and holds no fantasy upside. Fine work on Thursday, though.
Apr 6 - 3:49 PM

Phillies purchased the contract of Daniel Nava from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Nava was probably a long shot to make the roster when camp opened but solidified his place by mashing to the tune of a .386 average over 44 Grapefruit League at-bats. Despite an impressive spring, the 34-year-old backup offers no fantasy value.
Mar 30 - 4:34 PM

Daniel Nava went 4-for-4 with a triple to help the Phillies top the Red Sox 6-5.

Nava is off to a 10-for-21 start as he attempts to win a spot on the Phillies bench. Last year, he had a similarly strong open for the Angels, hitting .419 with two homers and a .545 OBP in March, only to bat .235/.309/.303 in 119 regular-season at-bats and get dropped from the roster in August.
Mar 12 - 4:24 PM

Phillies GM Matt Klentak feels Daniel Nava has a good chance to make the team's Opening Day roster.

"He can play the corner outfield spots, first base, and he’s a switch-hitter, so he’s got a shot," said Klentak. Nava will compete with Aaron Altherr, Chris Coghlan and Tyler Goeddel for one of the Phillies' final bench spots this spring. Including the Phillies, Nava has now been with five teams over his last three seasons.

Phillies signed 1B/OF Daniel Nava to a minor league contract.

Nava elected to become a free agent in early November after he was outrighted off of the Angels 40-man roster. The 33-year-old will compete for a bench spot on the Phillies' Opening Day roster.
