FORT WORTH, Texas -- The Texas Rangers have made a $13.3 million qualifying offer to Josh Hamilton, ensuring them draft-pick compensation if the slugger signs with another team.
General manager Jon Daniels said Friday that the team isn't making the same offer to Mike Napoli, though there is mutual interest of the catcher returning to the Rangers. Napoli made $9.4 million this season.
Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, hit a career-high 43 homers and drove in 128 runs for the Rangers this season. He is one of the biggest free agents on the market.
Daniels, speaking shortly before the deadline for offers, said the team knows there's no chance of Hamilton accepting that offer.
