Mike Napoli Hasn’t Been Re-Signed by Rangers Due to Down Season, Need for Better Defensive Catcher (Video)

It seems that every MLB team is pining after free agent first baseman/catcher Mike Napoli this offseason, so you have to wonder why the Texas Rangers don’t seem to be rushing to re-sign their 2012 All Star.

The Rangers didn’t offer Napoli a qualifying offer this year after he rejected a three-year, $38 million extension last offseason. Napoli is meeting with the Rangers this week after meeting with the Mariners and Red Sox, but Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest thinks that Napoli’s down 2012 season and declining skills as a defensive catcher may keep the Rangers from signing him.

Watch the video above to hear Andro’s reasoning for why the Rangers haven’t re-signed their star free agent.
