We have discussed up here. Final decision: We think Napoli would be excellent choice to use legs to get on base. https://t.co/wacFUhEXiP

R.J. Alvarez puts out the #Rangers' rally, getting Fielder, Napoli and Hamilton. Four-run fifth, though, ties game at 5-5.
Rougned Odor, Mike Napoli can't catch an Albert Pujols popup. It's a double. Tying run to the plate. It's David Murphy.

Question is: Will Rangers send Napoli in for Moreland to see if Jays go to Mark Lowe?
Napoli hits for Moreland. Jays will stick with Cecil it appears. He is holding right-handers to .198 BA
Mike Napoli to hit for Mitch Moreland with two outs, runner at second. Jays didn't have right-hander warming, but do now.
Napoli delivers again.
Mike Napoli ties with an RBI single to right-center, scoring Delino DeShields. Hit came off a lefty, which is why Napoli was acquired. 4-4.
Napoli had been 2 for 17 against Cecil
Mike Napoli picked off to end #Rangers' eighth, but Brett Cecil turns an ankle or twists a knee. Slow to get off field.
Napoli ties the game in the 8th. Watch: http://t.co/hKkP4TbRjM http://t.co/wkcMuybzbK
Sorry had Moreland.
Napoli is 2 for 7 vs. Lowe
Bautista staring Kela down on walk to first base and now complaining to Napoli
Mike Napoli on his convo at 1B with Jose Bautista: "Yeah, I'm not going to get into that conversation."
This is, in my mind, what Rangers are saving Napoli for, but could have had him for all ABs, not just one. https://t.co/sB5XKl5rHE
Hamilton out of game, Napoli pinch hit. Choices to hit for Venable were Stubbs, Alberto, Gimenez. https://t.co/RUdgu9Be32
If you are just tuning in, here's why Jeff Banister stuck with Mitch Moreland over Mike Napoli: http://t.co/gmH6efn7gW
Mike Napoli is batting for Chris Gimenez, and Will Venable is on deck for Drew Stubbs.
Also, Mike Napoli is a finalist at 1B along with Mark Teixeira and Eric Hosmer. ... Rangers did not have finalists at C, P, 2B, SS. (1/2)
Napoli had 3 "Defensive Runs Saved," at 1B this season, Mitch Moreland had 2. Moreland had highest UZR/150 in AL; Napoli was 3rd

1B Mike Napoli and 3B Adrian Beltre are one of 3 finalists at their positions for 2015 Rawlings Gold Glove Awards.
