Daniel Nava rejoined the Red Sox on Thursday as the team activated him from the paternity leave list.
In a corresponding roster move, the Sox sent rookie knuckleballer Steven Wright back to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Nava, who had been on paternity leave since Monday, hasn't played since Aug. 2. Entering Thursday's game at the Kansas City Royals, he's batting .282 with 10 home runs and 53 RBIs and 55 runs scored in 96 games.
