2015 Outlook: There's both statistical and physical volatility associated with Ramirez heading into 2015. Ramirez has played in at least 150 games just twice over the past six seasons, having missed time with oblique, hand and leg injuries. His batting average has ranged anywhere from .243 to .345 in recent seasons. He's hit 20 or more homers many times and stolen that many bases a number of times but has not done both in the same season since 2012. The move to Fenway Park provides Ramirez with the first friendly home ballpark in his career, but the ballparks are not what have hurt his fantasy production in recent seasons. This is a surefire first-round lock if health risks could be removed, but the fact that he's played just one full season in the past four is what keeps him out of the first round and possibly the second, depending on your comfort level.
2015 Outlook: It was generally assumed that Nava's tremendous 2013 campaign would afford him a relatively long leash as the primary right fielder in Boston, but he was sent down less than a month into the season after slashing just .149/.240/.269 in his first 17 games. He continued to struggle upon his return in late May, going hitless in his first five games back, but Nava batted .331 over the following two months, albeit with just six extra-base hits and 10 RBIs. Nava posted a .830 OPS with two homers and 17 RBIs in September, but finished with just four homers and a .706 OPS, 125 points below his 2013 mark. While he improved his contact rate to a career-best 86.7 percent, he had a mere .399 OPS from the right side of the plate, leaving him to consider giving up switch-hitting. It would probably be for the best, but Nava's ability from the left side alone might not be enough to earn him regular time to start the year unless Shane Victorino experiences more health issues.
