News: Napoli will miss Wednesday's game due to back spasms, the Boston Herald's Scott Lauber reports. Impact: He is temporarily unavailable, but it doesn't seem like a major issue, as he first reported the discomfort when he arrived at the park prior to Wednesday's game. Kelly Johnson replaced him at first base, and Napoli should be considered day-to-day.(RotoWire, )

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, )

News: Napoli homered and drove in three runs in Wednesday's win over the Reds. He was back in the lineup after getting a day off Tuesday, when David Ortiz played first base. Impact: The Red Sox are coming back home Thursday and have no more series in National League cities, so we should see Napoli in the lineup pretty much every day from here on out.(RotoWire, )

News: Napoli is out of the lineup Tuesday at Cincinnati, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: The Red Sox have a two-game set on tap in a National League park, leaving one less spot to go around. As a result, David Ortiz will man first base, a development that may stay in place through Wednesday. Currently, Napoli has reached base in five consecutive games, batting .222 (4-for-18) with one homer, two RBI, one run, and five walks versus seven strikeouts.(RotoWire, )

News: Napoli hit a 405-foot home run to left center on Friday against the Angels, as he scored a run, took a base on balls and picked up one RBI in three at-bats. Impact: The Red Sox first baseman is getting on base (.360 OBP over his career) at a fantastic clip once again and remains one of the more productive hitters in the game with his ability to hit for power and to take a walk. The home run was Napoli's 14th of the season, which puts him on pace to once again exceed the 20-homer mark.(RotoWire, )
