Tonight; Larue(0 for 3-with a BB and a K so far). Last night; Valentin(1 for 4- single). Wednesday: Ross(1 for 4-double).
Three catchers is one too many. Nobody gets enough playing time to get 'hot'. We tie up a roster spot. (Although Javier and Ross pinch hit well...) I also wonder what we lose by way of consistency in the catcher getting to watch opposing batters and getting to know them better....
We also have to look at the lack of real productivity from Larue and Valentin.
ABs Avg. OBP SLG HR
Larue 144 .197 .333 .333 5
Valentin 126 .222 .286 .317 2
Ross 123 .309 .380 .675 12
Many have speculated WK is showcasing Larue...I hope it works and we can trade him.
