Mike Napoli meets with Red Sox

Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

Free agent catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli met with the Boston Red Sox Saturday.

Free agent catcher/first baseman Mike Napoli, who has spent the last two seasons with the Texas Rangers, was in Boston Saturday to meet with members of the Red Sox' front office, according to the Boston Globe's Peter Abraham.

Napoli is currently seeking a four-year contract. According to Abraham, the Red Sox are quite interested in the 31-year-old, and owner John Henry has kept an eye on him since September. Boston is looking to rebuild its roster under new manager John Farrell.

Napoli has also met with the Seattle Mariners. He is expected to meet with the Rangers sometime next week.

In 108 games with Texas last season, Napoli hit .227/.343/.469 with 24 home runs and 56 RBIs. Those numbers were a steep decline from his career-best 2011 season, in which he hit .320/.414/.631 with 30 homers and 75 RBIs. For his career, Napoli is a .259/.356/.507 hitter, and he has compiled 146 home runs and 380 RBIs.
