Report: Red Sox sign Mike Napoli for 3 years, $39 million

UPDATE: The Red Sox have agreed to terms on a 3-year, $39 million deal with catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli.

The Red Sox appear to be close to signing free-agent catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli, according to a report from WEEI and other media sources.

The deal is expected to be for three years.

The addition of Napoli to the Red Sox's already deep collection of catchers should give fuel to speculation that the team will entertain trade offers for Jarrod Saltalamacchia or Ryan Lavarnway, while keeping recently signed $6.2 million backup catcher David Ross.
