The Los Angeles Angels have Mike Napoli riding the pine

It’s interesting to see what the Angels are doing at catcher so far this season as Mike Napoli has been riding the pine in favor of Jeff Mathis. Napoli has played in only 5 games this season for the Angels and he is 2 for 15 (.133 avg, .369 OPS) with 1 RBI. He has a .256 career average with the Angels with a .851 OPS as he has a lot of power for a catcher. He has cranked 66 homers in his four years with the Angels including 20 in each of the last two years. I have a feeling that the Angels are going to trade Napoli before too long as they appear to favor Mathis’ defense over Napoli’s hitting behind the plate.
