Mike Napoli’s hip condition caught early, should heal

6 Comments

Mike Napoli lost out on a three-year deal due to a diagnosis of avascular necrosis. But Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports that the condition was caught early and is not supposed to get worse over time. Indeed, his doctor says Napoli “has a very good chance that that hip will heal and he’ll go on to a long productive career.”

That may make Napoli feel a little better, but he’s still out $34 million in guaranteed money after the diagnosis.
