Napoli, whose deal with the Boston Red Sox is still not finalized, hit 24 home runs and drove in 56 runs, while Hamilton pounded 43 homers and had 128 RBIs.

"We're looking at that now," Daniels said Wednesday during a conference call with the media. "There's a decent chance we'll look to add somebody."
Daniels said that could be through trade or free agency.
