Report: Mike Napoli Meeting With Red Sox This Weekend in Boston


The Red Sox have long been reported to be interested in catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli, and now it sounds like they’re ready to show him up close what the team can offer.

Napoli is visiting Boston this weekend to meet with the Red Sox, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Napoli would most likely play first base if he were to sign with Boston, with his catching abilities taking a back seat since the Red Sox have catchers Ryan Lavarnway, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and the newly signed David Ross all under contract.

Napoli, 31, is also reportedly meeting with the Mariners.
