News: Napoli will have surgery to treat a sleeping disorder. Impact: The disorder occurs when someone briefly stops breathing during sleep. It can disrupt sleep, leading to fatigue. The surgery involves repositioning the jaws and sometimes the tongue to keep the windpipe from becoming obstructed. A year after helping the Red Sox win the World Series, Napoli batted .248 with 17 homers and 55 RBIs this season while fighting injuries to his finger, toe, knee and back. (STATS, 2:24pm)

News: Napoli will have surgery to alleviate sleep apnea, WEEI.com reports. "I've been dealing with sleep apnea for a long time, my whole career," Napoli wrote in a text to WEEI.com. "I've tried numerous things and none of them worked. Dental mouth piece, CPAP machine, medicines ... It's just gotten to the point where I have to get this done." Impact: The procedure will be performed Nov. 4, and it's the only surgery on tap for Napoli, who battled finger, toe and back injuries in 2014.(RotoWire, )
