    How do we handle Devin's issue

    Well he is probably looking at anywhere from 5-10 games suspended for his disagreement with the homeplate ump last night. Now I keep hearing we can't replace his roster spot, thus we will be playing a man down during those games, but the Reds MUST bring up another catcher. Problem is neither AAA catchers are on 40 man roster. So what do the Reds do?

    Why can't we replace his roster spot? If a player is suspend he isn't on the 25 man roster.

    Cut Costanzo from the 40 man and call up Navarro.

    Why can't Hanigan play all the games while he's suspended? He gets a bulk of the PT anyway.

    According to Chris Welch last night, one a player is suspended you can not replace his roster spot, thus you play a man down. Not sure if that is correct, but that is what they were reporting.

    That's what is going to happen, but a rule of thumb is that you absolutely NEED 2 catchers. If you only have one and for some reason he goes down, you might as well forefeit.

    What if he gets hurt, whom is your backup?

    Valdez, he plays everywhere else.

    So you are okay with going with just one catcher, making him catch all the upcoming games and not have a reliable backup...

    When has Hanigan ever gotten hurt?

    If something did happen to Hannigan, you'd only be stuck for that one game. You could always bring up the guy from AAA for the next game.

    No, but I'd see what Valdez could do. We don't have another catcher on the 40 man. Why make things weird for a 10 game suspension at most? Hanigan has been pretty healthy, enough for me not to worry about it. Worst case scenario you plug someone in for one or two games.

    That absolutely won't and should not happen. Catcher isn't just a position on the field.


    If Mes is gone a catcher will be recalled to take his place.

    You're prob right, I'm not involved in professional baseball in any way, at best I'm a mediocre armchair GM.


    All I'm saying is, I think you could get away with having 1 catcher for 10 games. If Hanigan gets hurt then you call someone up.
