As first relayed by Tim Britton of the Providence Journal, the Red Sox have placed first baseman Mike Napoli on the 15-day disabled list because of ongoing problems with his sprained left ring finger.

Napoli dislocated the finger on a dive into the second base bag back in mid-April. He initially missed just one game, but discomfort has lingered and he will use this extended to rest to finally get rid of it.

Mike Carp will be the primary fill-in at first base for the defending World Series-champion Red Sox, who are in last place in the American League East standings and have lost nine consecutive games.

Napoli is batting .260/.390/.416 with five home runs and 22 RBI in 43 games this season.

    It’s Bobby Valentine’s fault, clearly.

      Why not? The lower down they finish, the better their position is in the draft next year. Finish in the bottom 10, the first round pick is protected.

    I feel for the disabled list. Anything Nap lands on is gonna get hurt.
