Daniel Nava has been out of the starting lineup for six of the 10 games the Red Sox have played in the postseason, a major reduction from his playing time in the regular season.

Nava hit .303 in the regular season and started 108 games in the outfield, the third most on the team. His .831 OPS was third among all American League outfielders, thanks to a .385 on-base percentage. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
