Re: Meso/Grandal question as it relates to Hanigan
through out his minor league career Mesoraco was always touted as a good offensive catcher although he may be better defensively than Grandal. Mesoraco did average .268 in his minor league career which isn't great but also isn't bad but the guy who I look to possibley take over for Hanigan is currently in AA is Tucker Barnhart. He had a down year in 2012 once he got called to AA hitting .200 after hitting .278 in high A (.247 on the season) but should adjust to the level of play this season and possibly move up to AAA by the end of the season next year while Mesoraco adjust more to the big league level while hopefully keeping Dionner Navarro as a back up because he is still only 28 even though he has been around forever.
