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.

Report: David Ross to play in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Impending free-agent catcher David Ross plans to play next season despite reports in September that he was considering retirement, MLBDailyDish.com reports.

Ross spent his last two seasons with the Red Sox on a two-year deal, and the door remains open for the veteran catcher to return to Boston, according to the report. He would serve as a backup and mentor to the team's young catchers if he were to resign with the Red Sox.

Report: Red Sox could prefer Jon Lester to James Shields
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox will likely set their sights on potential free agent right-hander James Shields in the offseason. But they could instead attempt to bring Jon Lester back to Beantown, according to the Boston Herald.

The Herald has speculated that the Sox could offer Shields at least $20 million a year in exchange for a shorter contract of no more than four years. But Lester could prove more attractive despite a bit of a higher cost. He is two years younger.

Shields has not earned his "Big Game" nickname with a 4.96 lifetime ERA in postseason action. Lester is 6-4 with a 2.57 ERA in the postseason.

Red Sox OF Allen Craig: 2013 injury played into 2014 mess
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig has cited a left foot injury sustained in 2013 for some of his monumental struggles this season.

Craig compiled a miserable stat line of .215/.279/.315 and performed even worse upon his arrival in Boston. The numbers were stunning considering his average exceeded .300 in each of the previous three years and that he drove in 90-plus runs in 2012 and 2013.

"I think it's certainly a part of it," Craig told MLB.com about the foot issue. "The offseason was limited a little bit. I don't want to use that as an excuse, but it was definitely a factor in my preparation for the season. I felt healthy all year so I don't look back at that as a main reason.

"I think that going into this offseason, a little more time, I'll definitely use that to my advantage. I think it will definitely help me and my conditioning, my preparation for next season."

Torey Lovullo gets green light to interview for Twins job
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Bench coach Torey Lovullo has received permission from the Red Sox to interview for the Twins managerial position, per the Boston Globe. Lovullo has already interviewed for the vacant spots in Houston and Texas.

Permission was not given to Lovullo last year to interview for the Cubs job due to an agreement between the two organizations forged in the wake of general manager Theo Epstien leaving Boston for Chicago.

Lovullo has expressed readiness to manage in the big leagues. "My confidence has grown being the bench coach in Boston and understanding what happens in a pretty tough environment, anything from a pretty challenging competitive environment, the AL East, the expectations of a fan base, and a competitive and large media contingent."
