Angels Give Daniel Nava One-Year, $1.375M Contract
The First At-Bat Salami
Former Red Sox IF/OF
was signed to a one-year, $1.375 million contract by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Orange County, California, United States of America, North America, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, Universe
. In his five MLB seasons so far, the soon-to-be 33-year old has batted .265 with 24 HRs, 172 RBIs and a .358 OBP over 455 games. For the Red Sox, Nava hit .267 with 23 HRs and 169 of those RBIs. Of course, in 2010, his storybook first MLB at-bat resulted in a
first-pitch grand slam
—just the second player in baseball history to achieve that feat. Nava's up-and-down career was always characterized by a 'can-do' attitude typified by the following quote,
"Quitting’s just not much of an option for me."
No, indeed. Best of luck, Daniel!
