The Red Sox added Jarrod Saltalamacchia at the trade deadline and could be bringing another catcher to Boston.

According to WEEI.com, the Red Sox have claimed Angels catcher and first baseman Mike Napoli off waivers.

Napoli is hitting .249 with 21 home runs in 2010.

The potential acquisition of Napoli casts further doubt upon Victor Martinez's future in Boston, as they play very similar roles.
