Daniel Nava Trying to Stay on an Even Keel Despite Hot Start

Daniel Nava Trying to Stay on an Even Keel Despite Hot Start Daniel Nava stopped by Friday Night Fenway to discuss his whirlwind first week in the major leagues.

Nava became only the third player in major league history to hit a grand slam in his first at bat, and only the second player to do so on his first pitch.

The 27-year-old left fielder is hitting .444 (8-for18) with a home run, six RBIs and four doubles in five games on the season thus far.

“What I really wanted was just a shot. I said if I fall on my face, so be it. Just give me a shot. I just want to play,” he said about his roundabout trip to the big leagues.

And don’t expect Nava to make any unexpected, Manny-like trips into the Green Monster anytime soon.

“No shot, no shot. No, I’m not going anywhere,” he said.
