Given the amount of money Napoli was owed, this isn't too surprising. While the 35-year-old swatted a healthy 29 homers this season, he was 19 percent worse than a league average hitter (81 wRC+) and batted an unsightly .193 with a 33.6 percent strikeout rate -- all career worst marks. He'll look to catch on elsewhere, though he may be forced to settle for a minor-league deal given the lack of demand for power hitters with high strikeout rates.
Moreland said the broken toe he sustained back in June led to a knee problem towards the end of the season, and while he was able to play through the pain, he'll have it checked out now that the Red Sox have been eliminated from the playoffs. There should be a clearer idea regarding his status following Tuesday's evaluation.
Moore played in 104 games for the Marlins this season during his first year with the team, but was removed from the 40-man roster, along with three others, Saturday. During the 2017 campaign, he slashed .230/.267/.401 with six home runs and 30 RBI.
Moreland will occupy a seat on the bench with left-hander Dallas Keuchel taking the mound for the Astros. In his place, Hanley Ramirez draws the start at first while Chris Young will make an appearance in the DH spot.
Goldschmidt vaulted the Diamondbacks to an early lead with a long ball in his first at-bat of the game in the bottom of the first inning, giving him just his third home run in the team's last 19 games. The first baseman closed September with a whimper, but the Diamondbacks will need the MVP candidate to be at his best beginning Friday, when his team will face Cy Young contender Clayton Kershaw as it kicks off its divisional series with the Dodgers.
Belt, who has a history with head injuries, missed the final two months of the season with a concussion, but he'll head into the offseason with no restrictions after being deemed symptom-free. He hit .241/.355/.469 with 18 homers in 104 games before his season was cut short due to the injury. Assuming he's able to enter next season healthy, look for him to return to a starting role for the Giants.
Hobson spent 2017 at Double-A Richmond, batting .246 with 35 RBI and 11 home runs. After a 2016 season in which he hit .163 with three home runs, the 26-year-old showed he still has some pop. He will likely retain a similar role next season, as he continues to work towards the majors.
The burly infielder saw just 11 at-bats since being called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Sept. 5, hitting safely in three of them. Vogelbach had initially been slated to start the regular season in a platoon at first base with veteran Danny Valencia, but a rough spring played a part in those plans being scuttled. He spent the majority of the campaign with the Rainiers, where he generated a solid .290/.388/.455 line with 42 extra-base hits (25 doubles, 17 home runs) and 83 RBI over 541 plate appearances. Vogelbach figures to get another long look in spring training, particularly with both Valencia and fellow veteran Yonder Alonso both currently unsigned for next season.
If he doesn't end up returning to Kansas City in free agency, Hosmer had a fitting ending to his prodcutive tenure with the team. He finishes the season slashing .318/.385/.498 while tying last year's career best of 25 home runs.
With an offseason to rest, Carpenter should be able to report to spring training in February at full strength. In addition to the shoulder ailment, back, finger, quad, and hip injuries impacted Carpenter at various points in 2017, but he managed to appear in 145 games and reach the 20-homer mark for the third straight season.
