Loss Of Middlebrooks And Victorino Taking Toll

Daniel Nava On Potentially Batting Leadoff: ‘Not Going To Change My Approach’

Fort Myers, Fla. — Daniel Nava is open to batting leadoff, ninth or anywhere in between. “If I am in the leadoff spot, I’ve been there before,” Nava said before the Boston Red Sox’s workout at JetBlue Park on Thursday. “…If they want me to do that, whatever they need.” Nava doesn’t have the speed of a traditional leadoff hitter, much less the speed of Boston’s...
