News: Napoli (finger) hopes to play Thursday, the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Napoli and the Red Sox had a pretty major scare Tuesday night, as the 32-year-old's finger was bent completely sideways after a head-first slide into second base. Manager John Farrell said, "At first glace I was worried he'd be out four weeks," but X-rays were negative and Napoli escaped with a dislocation. He admitted that his chances of playing Thursday hinge on how well he can grip a bat, but Napoli seems confident he'll return in relatively short order.(RotoWire, )

Daniel Nava will get the start at first base Wednesday, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Napoli were to require additional time.(RotoWire, )
