NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Boston Red Sox began to play catch-up by getting All-Star catcher Mike Napoli, Tampa Bay took a chance on James Loney and the New York Yankees prepared for more time minus Alex Rodriguez on a brisk Monday at baseball's winter meetings.

Soon after the Hall of Fame welcomed three new members from long ago, several teams got busy. The World Series champion San Francisco Giants kept center fielder Angel Pagan while the Texas Rangers brought back catcher Geovany Soto and tried to add injured closer Joakim Soria.

Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke remain the top free agents. No telling if they'll sign before the session ends Thursday, but a lot of clubs seemed eager to lock down players.
