Nava (back) signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates on Friday, Liz Bloom of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Nava underwent back surgery in late February, and his inability to suit up for any Grapefruit League games caused the Pirates to release the outfielder from his previous deal earlier this week. He will rejoin the club on a new contract with the hopes of returning to action around the middle of May. Once he's back to full health, it's expected that Nava will contend for a spot in the outfield with the big-league team.
