Report: Red Sox make progress with Mike Napoli

The Red Sox are making progress with Mike Napoli and should have him signed by next week, CBS Sports reported on Wednesday.

Napoli agreed to terms on a three-year, $39 million deal in early December. The deal broke down when Napoli came to Boston for a physical and the Sox had concerns about a hip injury. The sides have been working since on new terms.


Red Sox GM Ben Cherington has said for several weeks that he was hopeful of getting a deal done.

The team has been exploring trades for a lefthanded hitting first baseman/outfielder to complement Napoli and new outfielder Jonny Gomes.
