You often hear about guys moving off of catcher in the minors and even some position players transitioning to catcher in college but I'm not sure I can think of a single player who has successfully transitioned to catcher in the minors.
Teams try it often enough. The Reds have tried it a few times in the past couple of years. Brandon Dailey has stuck at the position. Neftali Soto didn't.
I don't know of any guys in the Majors who were transitioned guys, but there has to be one.
