Rosenthal: Napoli's hip causing contract delay

Mike Napoli - Ezra Shaw

Ken Rosenthal provides an update on the delay in Boston signing Mike Napoli

Ken Rosenthal has a story up about the ongoing Mike Napoli contract saga...for those who have forgotten, it has been almost three weeks since news broke about the Red Sox agreeing with Napoli on a 3 year, $39 million deal, but the deal has yet to be made official.

Rosenthal indicates the Boston physical revealed a problem with one of Napoli's hips, and it was this hip problem that made Seattle leery of signing him, and may have contributed to the Rangers' reluctance to tender a qualifying offer.

In the meantime, Boston and Napoli are apparently continuing to try to work through how to address Boston's concerns. Napoli is still technically a free agent.
