The Boston Red Sox signed first baseman Mike Napoli to a new two-year contract worth $32 million.

The deal was made official Thursday night, nearly a week after the two sides agreed to it.

Napoli. 32, receives a significant raise over a one-year, $5 million deal that he signed when he joined the Red Sox.

After originally agreeing to a three-year, $39 million deal with the Red Sox during the offseason last year, the contract was amended when a degenerative hip condition was found during a physical.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Red Sox designated outfielder Alex Castellanos for assignment.
