The Red Sox and first baseman Mike Napoli have agreed to a new two-year contract worth $32 million, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com has confirmed. Rob Bradford of WEEI.com first reported the deal.

Napoli, 32, hit .259/.360/.482 (129 OPS+) with 38 doubles and 23 home runs in 139 games for Boston last season. The inked him to a one-year deal worth $5 million last offseason after originally agreeing to a three-year, $39 million pact. The terms were changed after a pre-signing physical revealed a degenerative hip condition.

The Red Sox made Napoli a qualifying offer but won't receive a supplemental first round draft pick for re-signing their own player. They also tendered qualifying offers to Jacoby Ellsbury and Stephen Drew.
