Indians Sign Mike Napoli To One-Year, $7M Contract

UPDATE: Deal worth $7M—plus $3M in incentives. Multiple reports indicate that former Red Sox first-baseman (and 2013 World Series Champion) Mike Napoli has been signed to a one-year contract by the Cleveland Indians. Terms of the deal are not yet known, but it appears that Napoli may split time at first-base and DH for The Tribe. So, the rumor that Napoli might be a fall-back option for Boston (in event of a Hanley Ramirez first-base melt-down) are clearly unfounded.
