Not a surprise. I thought Navarro would get major league contract with someone. He's too good a hitter and a viable backup catcher not to be signed by someone. I was surprised the Reds had gotten him on a minor league contract last season. It's time now for Mez to step up and be the catcher we think he can be. I don't think anymore time in the minors would help him that much. More playing time at the big league level will do that. I hope they flip him and Hanigan next year. Mez 3 days or more and Hanigan no more than two days a week. Time to find out if he can handle the bigs or not.
