According to a report from CBS Sports’ [1] Jon Heyman, the Mike Napoli [2] situation should be resolved by next week at the latest, as the Red Sox [3] and the free agent continue to make progress.

The sides reportedly agreed to a three-year, $39 million deal seven weeks ago, before an issue arose following Napoli’s physical — apparently his hip, although it’s not expected to prevent Napoli from being ready on Opening Day.

Napoli is said to have been in touch with a couple of other American League [4] teams, but the Red Sox appear to be the favorite — assuming the sides continue to move toward an agreement.
