Also Thursday, Cherington said he had nothing to announce on Mike Napoli, the catcher-first baseman who also agreed to a $39 million, three-year deal during the winter meetings, pending a physical. That contract has yet to be announced.

“Our hope is that we’ll be able to resolve the issues,” Cherington said. “We’re working on it.”

Cherington did not comment on negotiations with Ryan Dempster, who finished last season with the Texas Rangers. Later Thursday, the team reached an agreement with him on a two-year, $26.5 million deal, according to two people familiar with the negotiations who spoke on the condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the deal was pending a physical. 

“We’re engaged with a pitcher,” Cherington said, without mentioning Dempster by name. “That’s all I can say at this point.”
