Red Sox to trim down loaded outfield soon
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox are expected to trim down its crowded outfield soon, with less than two weeks before Opening Day, according to MLB.com on Tuesday.

"We have to take these remaining days in camp here and determine what's best for us as an organization," said Farrell. "I'm not suggesting there's player movement anywhere, but there's only going to be three [starting] spots."

At this point, it appears as if Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts have left and center field locked up, respectively. Daniel Nava, Shane Victorino, Rusney Castillo and Allen Craig are all in the mix for the final spots.

"And there's six guys -- well, there will be five guys in that group to handle those three spots, with two guys coming off the bench. What that means for the final Opening Day roster remains to be seen.

"We're just trying to get more exposure to Rusney in right field; we need to get a better gauge on Vic's durability, if we can, over the coming days. We acknowledged from the first day in camp, the outfield, there's going to be a lot of focus on our outfield.

"That pretty much hasn't changed, but what we've seen are some really encouraging things. And that's how quickly Rusney's come back and shown decent timing at the plate [and] what Mookie's done in center field speaks for itself."

Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava comfortable in lefty-lefty matchups
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava is looking more comfortable at the plate this spring. Nava decided this offseason to stop switch-hitting and go exclusively from the left-hand side. He went up against Francisco Liranio Saturday in a lefty-lefty matchup and Nava said he liked how it went, reports MLB.com.

"That was a good test," said Nava, who played first base on Saturday. "Everyone knows what he can do. He introduced me to it real quick. I faced him last year right-handed. He's challenging. That's why he's one of the best pitchers in the National League."

Nava has hit better from the left side his entire career and is hoping it will continue this season.

"I think I'm starting to get an idea," said Nava. "As much as I don't want to take pitches, I want to see stuff. So I'm starting to get an idea of what I need to do left-handed to put myself in a better position to take good swings."

Manager John Farrell thinks his timing is key to having success at the plate.

"He's put up very good at-bats against some good left-handers -- and today was one of them," said Farrell. "I even think there's some benefit when he does face a right-hander. He's stayed on the left side of the plate, so his timing may be more readily spot on when a right-hander does come in the game. He hasn't looked uncomfortable against left-handers. He still tracks and sees the ball very well."

Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava hitting only left-handed this spring
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava is planning to only hit from the left side during this spring after hitting from both sides of the plate for most of his career, reports the Providence Journal.

"I'm definitely trying it out," Nava said. "I'm just really trying to see what becomes of it. I still have the right-hand swing; it's not in the garbage. Just knowing how the left-right splits are, I thought it would be a good shot to see with my approach if it could work."

Nava has hit .293 with a .385 slugging percentage from the left side in his career while hitting just .209 from the right.

"I just need more time to really get an idea. I might as well at least commit to it as long as I can, and we'll see what happens," Nava said. "I'm very realistic right now that it's going to be a challenge, but hopefully later down the road it might get a little easier."
