Two games off and an off day Monday apparently have done wonders for Mike Napoli, who will be back behind the plate Tuesday. He suffered a bruised quadriceps muscle near his right knee Friday in the fifth inning and left after eight. He was put through a series of drills Tuesday afternoon by minor-league catching instructor Hector Ortiz and passed. So, Napoli will catch Tuesday and is also expected to catch Wednesday afternoon.
