"Yes, we do," Farrell said. "Even the other day against [Joba] Chamberlain, I know it was a first pitch fastball, but I think the one thing Jonny was pretty clear about in Spring Training was maybe simplifying his approach against right-handers and being more clear with what he was looking for in certain counts. You don't want to over-examine one at-bat, but I thought he swung the bat well against righties in Spring Training."
At least at this point in the season, Gomes and Nava should see just about all of the at-bats at DH.
"Until we get initially into a stretch of everyday guys who might need a spot at the DH slot to get them off their feet for a day, [Gomes and Nava] would be the intent," Farrell said.
