Description: Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli appears to be finally finding his stroke as he hit another home run and doubled versus the Angels on Sunday.
Insight: Napoli hit a pair of bombs on Saturday and one on Friday, so he has four in three games. Napoli's home run was a two-run blast, and he drove in two more on a double in the eighth. Boston won, 6-1. Napoli is 9-for-21 with five home runs in the last six games.

Description: Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts against Rays starter Chris Archer.
Insight: Napoli is off to an ectremely slow start and doesn't figure to get "healthy" in this unfavroable matchup. Expect Allen Craig to be out there and Napoli with a day off. Update: Napoli is getting the day off, but it's Daniel Nava at first.

Description: Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is 4-for-10 with a pair of home runs versus Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez.

Insight: Napoli had a good first season in Boston but his numbers fell off in 2014 to .248 with 17 HR and 55 RBI. The 33-year-old might not have many more chances, so we hope this works.
 
9/27/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is not expected to play in the final series, according to beat reporter Sean Adams.
Insight: Too bad, because Napoli has hit Mashahiro Tanaka well with two home runs in six at-bats. He'll finish the season batting .248 with 17 HR and 55 RBI, well below preseason expectations.
 
Cold9/25/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is out again on Thursday against the Rays.
Insight: Napoli hasn't played since last Wednesday due to lingering discomfort in one of his fingers. At this point, do not count on Napoli returning this weekend. Allen Craig is starting at first base on Thursday.

Description: Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is 12-for-32 (.375) against Royals starter Jason Vargas in his career.
Insight: Napoli has also hit for power in this matchup, batting two doubles and going deep four times. It is a bit risky starting Napoli because he is 0-for-11 in his last three games, but historically, he hits very well against Vargas.

Description: Boston first baseman Mike Napoli is hitless is seven at-bats versus Rays left-hander Drew Smyly.

Insight: Napoli is just 1-for-10 with six strikeouts in their matchups. The 1B has been swinging a cold bat, hitting just .152 over the past two weeks (eight games). Keep looking.
