Enough playing time is also apparently subjective.
I disagree completely with your insistence of enough playing time and insist that Mesoraco got plenty of playing time last season, considering how badly he played in that time.
I don't believe this is that difficult.
Mesoraco stunk last season. Therefore, he needs to improve before he gets more playing time.
As to the pitchers, yeah, it kind of is in their hands. If Cueto-- or Latos, or Bailey, or whomever Baker chooses to pair with Hanigan-- is dominating as a starter with Hanigan behind the plate, why switch his catcher? It makes no sense.
If Hanigan gets injured (which is a distinct possibility), Mesoraco gets increased time. If Hanigan struggles offensively to the point where his bat becomes more of a detriment than his defense is an advantage, Mesoraco gets more playing time. If Mesoraco dominates offensively and proves that his defense was a blip, he gets more playing time.
