A key member of the Sox’ 2013 World Series championship team, Nava is batting .149 (10 for 67) with a .240 on-base percentage and .509 OPS through 17 games this season after putting together a slash line of .303/.385/.830 over 134 games last season.
A right-hander, Wilson was active for Wednesday night’s game against the New York Yankees at Fenway Park. In eight appearances with Pawtucket, he was 0-0 with one save over eight scoreless innings. He gave up four hits, struck out nine and walked five (one intentional).
