The Deal is said to be for $7 million with $3 million in incentives, as reported by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Mike Napoli hit .224 with 18 home runs in 2015. He has been on the decline for a number of years now, but may still have something left in the tank. Last year in Texas he hit .295 in 78 AB’s. He will also reunite with hitting coach Ty Van Burkleo who was with Napoli while with the Los Angeles Angels.
