Report: Houston Astros Interested In Mike Napoli

Matt Medley

Fox Sports MLB insider Ken Rosenthal reported on Sunday that the Houston Astros are intetested in free-agent 1B/DH Mike Napoli.

Napoli hit a career-high 34 home runs in 2016 with the Cleveland Indians and could be in line for a big pay day, but his postseason struggles will factor into the Tribe front office's decision to either pursue him or let another team sign him.

The Astros missed out on the playoffs in 2016 after winning the American League Wild Card Game in 2015 and an experienced veteran like Napoli could fit in well with their young team.
