Feb. 7 11:56 AM PT12:56 PM MT1:56 PM CT2:56 PM ET14:56 ET19:56 GMT3:56 12:56 PM MST2:56 PM EST3:26 PM VEN23:56 UAE1:56 PM CT-Napoli has passed his physical and will be introduced Thursday with an $8.5 million, one-year deal for a third stint with the Texas Rangers.
Analysis: Napoli will be utilized as a first baseman and designated hitter for Texas. He was a member of the Rangers in 2011-12 -- making his lone All-Star team in 2012 -- and again for the latter part of the 2015 campaign. The veteran established career highs of 34 homers and 101 RBIs last season while helping the Cleveland Indians reach the World Series. But he also batted just .239 and struck out a whopping 194 times, second-most in the American League.
