Daniel Nava avoids arbitration with the Red Sox

Outfielder Daniel Nava and the Red Sox have agreed to a one-year, $1.85 million deal, avoiding arbitration.

Nava requested $2.25 million and the Red Sox countered at $1.3 million, so the two sides are settling slightly above the midpoint.

Nava was arbitration eligible for the first time following a season in which he rebounded from a bad first half by hitting .297 with a .765 OPS after the All-Star break. He’s slated for a part-time role this season.
