The absence of Napoli gave Mike Carp the chance to start two days in a row at first base.
Carp belted two doubles in Wednesday's 6-4 loss, showing flashes of the player who seemed to come up big every time he got a start in 2013.
"There's no hesitation [playing Carp]," Farrell said. "We're comfortable putting any guy in our roster in the lineup when called upon or when needed. We're fortunate that we do have some depth. We can go to a quality at-bat. I think as he's starting to show, the more consistent at-bats of late are starting to pay off with some timing and some hard-hit balls like last night."
