Napoli coming back… Why?
The Rangers are getting Mike Napoli back from the Red Sox.
Not sure why they are getting Napoli but an announcement is expected tonight.
The Rangers could use catching help but Napoli hasn’t caught since 2012.
He can play first base. Mitch Moreland plays first base.
He is a right-handed bat. He has more experience than Ryan Strausborger and Ryan Rua but can’t play their positions.
He is hitting .229 against left-handed pitching. He is hitting .267 with a .533 slugging percentage so he has been swinging the bat better.
He is a winner. He is experienced. He has been productive in the past. It will be interesting to see how the Rangers fit him in.
