News: Napoli is out of the lineup Saturday in Tampa Bay, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Napoli was sidelined for three games last week due to back spasms, but the brief respite didn't improve his prospects at the plate, as he proceeded to tally just two hits in 24 at-bats in the interim. He'll hand over first base to Allen Craig, who is batting sixth in the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Napoli will miss Wednesday's game due to back spasms, the Boston Herald's Scott Lauber reports.

News: Napoli is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Angels, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports. Impact: Napoli will take a seat as the Red Sox stock up on left-handed bats to counter Angels righty Garrett Richards. The first baseman typically has relatively neutral splits and just received a day of rest Sunday, so it isn't out of the realm of possibility that he's dealing with some sort of injury concern.(RotoWire, )
