Reports have varied regarding what type of offer the Red Sox have made to re-sign Mike Napoli, but in the meantime Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies have expressed interest in the free agent first baseman.
Colorado’s first-round pick is protected, so signing Napoli would cost them a second-rounder instead after he turned down the one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer from the Red Sox.
Questions about his health turned a three-year deal into a one-year deal for Napoli last offseason, but he hit .259 with 23 homers and an .842 OPS in 139 games for the Red Sox and now looks to be in line for a big payday.
