Re: Reds sign Orlando Cabrera to one-year, $3M deal; option for second year
I kind of agree with Bumstead -- they've said all the right positive things about Janish, but he's 27 and expecting him to be anything above a replacement-level bat going forward is really, really optimistic. I think he's transitioning into "he is what he is, make the best use of it" territory. That means defensive fill-in. But what if Cabrera looks good afield in the spring and doesn't project to need a late-innings caddy? With Miles able to handle short in a pinch and Sutton still around, suddenly I can see a scenario where Janish doesn't make the team.
Not all who wander are lost
