What a difference a couple of years can make. At the end of 2007, Daniel Nava was finishing his first season of independent ball in the Golden League. He had gone undrafted out of Santa Clara (where he had been cut earlier in his career), and had to rely on the independent leagues to even get a small shot at making it back to associated baseball.

Now, after spending a year-and-a-half working his way quickly through first A+, then AA, and finally AAA ball in the Red Sox' farm system, Soxprospects.com is reporting that Daniel Nava will finally make his major league debut. He will replace Josh Reddick on the roster as he's returned to Pawtucket.

Nava's ascent through the system was fast and impressive, not really struggling at any level. Though his numbers at AAA have not been as outlandish as they were in the lower levels, Nava's line of .294/.364/.492 is still pretty impressive for someone first seeing AAA pitching.

Good luck to Nava. It's been a long road getting here--hopefully he sticks around for a long while.
