That argument goes both ways. You can say he doesn't perform well due to a lack of playing time, but you could also say he doesn't deserve playing time due to his lack of performing. The Reds have a long list of prospects who weren't highly thought of when they were drafted but earned more playing time because they showed some glimmer of promise in limited action. This was Tordi's fourth year in the organization, and he should consider himself lucky that the Reds liked him enough to let him advance beyond rookie ball, despite doing nothing to earn a promotion other than having seniority. His ability to play catcher didn't screw him over--it's what has gotten him so many at-bats in the first place.
