Napoli hurt his ring finger on a headfirst slide into second base in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox. He sat out Wednesday's game.
''Mike's relatively fine,'' Red Sox manager John Farrell said. ''The swelling continues to go down. The discomfort that was there yesterday has lessened today, and there will probably be some taping just to support it further.''
Napoli entered Thursday with a .302 batting average and three homers in 13 games.
