What about this guy for our lefty off the bench
The 27-year old switch-hitter is batting .328-3-17.
Could he help off the bench and be an option with Dusty using Mesoraco to pinch-run three times already this year?
He's hitting .425 vs LHP/.280 vs RHP. He's a better career hitter vs RHP .257 (.238 LHP).
He's an 8-year ML catcher with Rays, Yankees and Dodgers.
The Dogers didn't like he work ethic and preparation and released him last August.
He had his shares of struggles in his career and life.
He was an All-Star with Tampa in 2010: .295-7-54.
He hit .353 in the 2010 World Series vs Phils.
He has faced since then:
Total last 3 years: .207 in 227 games/676 AB
He's thrown out 30% of runner stealing in his career, including 39% in 2010.
But defense has been considered his weakness.
