Sleep apnea almost caused Red Sox's Mike Napoli to retire
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Dealing with sleep apnea almost caused Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli to retire prematurely from baseball, reports the Boston Globe.

"I couldn't do it anymore, feeling the way I was feeling," Napoli said. "I was like, 'I need to have the surgery or I'm not going play anymore.' That's how bad it was."

During the offseason, Napoli underwent facial reconstruction surgery to correct the condition, which was preventing him from getting a proper night of rest.

"It was a brutal process," Napoli said. "It was probably one of the worse things I've ever done."

With the surgery a success and Napoli recovered from losing weight due to a six-week liquid diet, Napoli is now sleeping better than he ever has.

Before the surgery, Napoli turned to medication, mouthpieces and a CPAP mask, but said those problems are now behind him.

"I wake up now and I'm ready to start my day," he said. "It's great."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli, who underwent surgery in November to address sleep apnea, is expected to resume hitting Friday, agent Brian Greiper told The Boston Globe. Grieper added Napoli is back up to 230 pounds after losing weight following the surgery because he was unable to eat.

Aside from dealing with sleep apnea, Napoli also dealt with injuries to his finger, toe, knee and back in 2014. He was limited to 119 games last season, batting .248 with 17 home runs, 20 doubles and 55 RBI. Napoli hit .259 with 23 home runs, 38 doubles and 82 RBI in 2013.

Mike Napoli to undergo surgery for sleep disorder
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli is slated to undergo surgery in early November to alleviate sleep apnea, WEEI.com reports.

"I’ve been dealing with sleep apnea for a long time, my whole career," Napoli wrote in a text. "I’ve tried numerous things and none of them worked. Dental mouth piece, CPAP machine, medicines … It’s just gotten to the point where I have to get this done."

Napoli also dealt with injuries to his finger, toe and back this season, but he isn't scheduled for any further surgery. He hit .240/.370/.419 with 17 home runs and 55 RBI in 415 at-bats this season, marking the first time since 2007 he has failed to collect 20 home runs.
