ORLANDO — As it turns out, the Red Sox have not extended a multiyear offer to first baseman Mike Napoli.

It’s was widely reported the Red Sox had extended him a multiyear deal, but multiple industry sources have confirmed the only offer the Red Sox have made to Napoli was the $14.1 million qualifying offer he refused on Monday.

The Red Sox, however, do want to keep Napoli and Napoli wants to stay, but they’ll have some competition from several teams who could use Napoli as a first baseman and DH. The Orioles, Yankees, Giants, Marlins, Rangers, Blue Jays, White Sox, Rockies, and Mariners are all potential suitors.
