Many of us wanted Daniel Nava back in Boston, but probably not this way. Mike Cameron will return to the disabled list as he continues to struggle with the abdominal injury he sustained early this year, allowing Daniel Nava to make his way back up from Pawtucket.
With Cameron out, this might mean some extended time in center field for recent call-up Ryan Kalish, who spent a majority of his time in Pawtucket.
Cameron was in the middle of a fantastic July before entering a slump in the last week or so, batting only .083/.154/.083 in three games, perhaps prompting the disabled list move. With Kalish up and Jacoby Ellsbury very close to returning (he is scheduled to be reevaluated on Wednesday), it's entirely possible that the Red Sox will elect to shelve him for the rest of the year in hopes of a strong comeback in 2011.
