Free-agent C Mike Napoli (Rangers) (hip) reached an agreement with the Boston Red Sox Dec. 3, but the deal is still not official. A physical examination revealed a problem with one of his hips, source says, and the two sides have yet to find common ground on that issue. The Texas Rangers are unlikely to bring Napoli back, as they have already added a pair of free-agent Cs A.J. Pierzynski and Geovany Soto.
