Mike Napoli declined his qualifying offer.

It was a one-year, $14.1 million proposal from the Red Sox, and Napoli is aiming much higher than that this winter in free agency. An MRI taken last Tuesday on his degenerative hip condition showed no major issues. Because the qualifying offer was made and then declined, the Red Sox will get a draft pick if Napoli signs elsewhere.

Reds placed C Devin Mesoraco on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement.

After seven weeks of trying to keep Mesoraco active despite the hip injury, the Reds have finally given in and thrown him on the disabled list. He hadn't made a start behind the plate since April 11 and when he tried to squat last week, he felt renewed discomfort in his hip. Mesoraco is now considering season-ending surgery.

David Wright is headed to California to have his back examined by a specialist.
