    Red Sox put RP Jean Machi on ML roster; Daniel Nava DFA'd

    The Red Sox have added right-handed reliever Jean Machi to the Major League roster. Machi was picked up off waivers from the Giants on Tuesday. Machi struggled with the Giants this season, posting a 5.14 ERA over 35 innings. But manager John Farrell explains the cause of Machi's struggles. "His fastball velocity has been consistently between 92 to 94 mph. His damage has come with his slider," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "It hasn't been as sharp as it was the last two years. That's the pitch that we have to hone in on and regain that consistency. "There is a little bit of a challenge bringing him in here with our situation with a need for innings right away with his inactivity. We'll see what he has." Machi had made just one appearance for the Giants since the All-Star break. To make room on the 40-man and 25-man rosters, Daniel Nava has been designated for assignment.

    On Thursday, Red Sox manager John Farrell gave an update on the status of outfielder Daniel Nava, who is on the 15-day disabled list while recovering from a thumb sprain, MLB.com reports. "Has not swung a bat yet," Farrell said of Nava. "The MRI confirmed that there's a contusion in the muscle in the left hand that's up from the thumb, toward the palm area. I don't know what the exact muscle it is, but there's inflammation that's going on there that they're still trying to calm down and heal, so he's going through treatments and strengthening. I don't have a date to put a bat back in his hand yet."
