Red Sox make offers to Ellsbury, Napoli, Drew

BOSTON — The Boston Red Sox are making $14.1 million qualifying offers to free agents Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew.

The team has decided not to make an offer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia, also a free agent. General manager Ben Cherington says he’d like to re-sign the catcher.

Cherington and manager John Farrell met with reporters at Fenway Park on Monday, five days after the team won the World Series. The Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals in six games to clinch their third championship in 10 years.

The team declined to make qualifying offers to infielder John McDonald and reliever Joel Hanrahan, who were not on the World Series roster.
