Napoli continues to rest, expected back Saturday
SEATTLE -- Mike Napoli, who has made three starts behind the plate and one at DH since being activated from the disabled list (left quad injury) last Saturday, was out of the starting lineup for a second consecutive game Friday.

Manager Ron Washington said it was his plan all along to have Napoli rest Thursday in Anaheim and Friday in Seattle and that Napoli will start Saturday against the Mariners.

As for Sunday, the manager said Napoli might get a start behind the plate or he might serve as DH again.

"It's all good with Napoli," Washington said. "But we've still gotta take care of him."
