All it took for Daniel Nava to step up to the plate was a little motivation.

The Red Sox outfielder has been posting consistent offensive numbers since his June 4 recall from Triple-A Pawtucket, which is exactly what Boston was looking for from its outfield. While Nava doesn’t hit for power, he has been able to get on base consistently and is batting .310 since the call-up.

Check out more on Nava from The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham in the video above.
