Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said the issues preventing the announcement of Mike Napoli’s three-year, $39 million deal remain unresolved.
“I understand the question,” Cherington said when asked about the topic at Thursday’s press conference to announce Shane Victorino’s official signing. “It’s a situation where we’re working through some things in regard to the player. Until every aspect of agreement is resolved, we’re not in position to comment publicly or announce anything. We’re still working through some issues. That’s all I can say at this point.”
