Nava homers in rehab game

Let’s wrap up a busy day with some notes:

• With Carl Crawford out, Daniel Nava is one of the players who could help replace him in left field.

Nava played his second minor league rehabilitation game for Triple A Pawtucket on Monday, going 1 for 3 with a solo home run against Rochester at McCoy Stadium. Nava, who has been on the disabled list since July 29 with a sprained left wrist, has played in two games for Pawtucket.

• Lefthanded reliever Rich Hill also moved closer to a return, throwing one scoreless inning. He struck out one and threw six of his eight pitches for strikes. Hill has thrown 3 1/3 innings in his rehab assignment so far.


• The funeral for Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky was held in Swampscott. The 92-year-old passed away last week. The private ceremony was attended by a large number of representatives from the organization including Cherington, John Henry, Larry Lucchino, Bobby Valentine, and many of the players.

The team is planning for a memorial service to be held at Fenway Park later this season.

• Jackie Bradley Jr., the organization’s top outfield prospect suffered an ankle injury while playing for Double A Portland on Tuesday and was helped off the field. It’s not known how serious the injury is.
