News: Red Sox manager John Farrell has cut back on Napoli's playing time due to nagging injuries, the Providence Journal reports. Napoli was rested Sunday for the fourth time in the past eight games. Impact: The main injury is a mangled left ring finger, but he's also had back and foot injuries this season. Letting Napoli have some time off works well as it allows Farrell to get Allen Craig semi-regular at-bats as the team's first baseman, making room in the outfield for the callup of Rusney Castillo.(RotoWire, )

He hasn't hit less than 20 home runs since 2007 and will look to avoid that again by hitting three home runs in the next couple weeks as the season draws to a close.(RotoWire, )
