He is worse than an average hitting catcher. Of 16 major league catchers who caught 100 games or more, only 3 have lower batting averages than Larue. The only one who struck out more than Larue is Posada who also has 93 RBIs.

Of all major league players, Larue is number 32 in strikeouts (with 113). He is number 231 in walks (with 25).

He seems like a hard worker and has a great arm. But he has to be the number one regular player to depart this off season or to become a full-time backup.
