Mike Napoli gets chance to rest lingering finger injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Red Sox manager John Farrell said sitting Mike Napoli Sunday against the A's was a chance to give him two days off, coupled with Monday's off-day, so he could rest some nagging injuries, including a finger on his left hand that he dislocated two weeks ago.

"He’s still trying to get over some things he’s banged up with and today being a day and then tomorrow, hopefully we can get further ahead of it," Farrell said, per WEEI.com. "If you notice after every at-bat, he’s getting taped up with that finger so it’s something that he still contends with.

"It speaks to his pain threshold, which is obviously high. The one thing that is extremely noticeable is the two-strike approach, where there is a willingness to cut down the swing to stay under control a little bit more without sacrificing too much power and I think it’s translated to the on-base and the overall average."
