MLB News: Mike Napoli Traded For The Second Time In A Week

Napoli is back in the AL West, this time with the Texas Rangers.

The Texas Rangers and Toronto Jays have agreed to a trade sending Mike Napoli to a new team for the second time in a week. The Rangers sent Frank Francisco and cash to the Jays for Napoli. On Friday, the Jays traded Vernon Wells to the Los Angeles Angels for Napoli and Juan Rivera.

Last season Napoli hit .238 with 26 HRs while playing catcher and filling in for Kendry Morales at 1B.

Napoli is expected to be a power bat off the bench while playing some catcher and firstbase for Texas.
