Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli exited Saturday night's game after just two innings. He was seen leaving the dugout with a team trainer. In his absence, Allen Craig moved from right field to first base while Daniel Nava entered the game in right. Napoli singled to lead off the second inning, advanced to third on a single and then scored on a single by Will Middlebrooks prior to his removal from the contest. More on the cause of his removal as it becomes available. UPDATE: The Red Sox announced that Napoli left the game due to illness. One day earlier, Brock Holt was removed from the Sox-Jays game for the same reason.
