The Pirates agreed to a minor league deal with outfielder Daniel Nava, according to a report from Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The contract reportedly contains an invitation to major league spring training. Nava, 34, had a .393 on-base percentage, a .421 slugging percentage and a .301 average with the Philadelphia Phillies last year. He received only 214 plate appearances in 80 games because of four different trips to the disabled list, two because of a strained left hamstring and two because of a back strain. The second back strain sent him to the 60-day DL in September and ended his season. Nava has played more games in left field during his seven-year major league career than anywhere else. If the switch-hitting Nava wins a roster spot, he could fill the hole in left field, along with Adam Frazier and Jordan Luplow, created with the move of Starling Marte to center field.
