Mike Napoli is generating interest this offseason thanks to his versatility. Napoli who can play first base or catcher is being pursued by the Red Sox, Mariners and Rangers among others, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.
Jim Bowden of ESPN.com notes that Napoli is holding out for a fourth year with Boston and is set to meet with Seattle who may be willing to offer him a four-year deal. Which ever team signs Napoli will not have to give up a draft pick as the Rangers did make a qualifying offer to the 31-year-old.
In 352 at-bats, Napoli hit .227/343/.469 with 24 home runs and 56 RBIs while striking out 125 times. Napoli logged 72 games behind the plate (which is where he prefers to play), 28 games at first base and 9 games as the designated hitter.
