It seems as if this guy Monell can hit a little bit. I wonder how his defense is?

Unlike Terry Collins, I'm not enamored with the Mendoza-line backup of the last two years.

Monell has a skill set that Recker does not - he hits from the left side of the plate. And is a decent hitter vs. righties, with pop.

He did make a stunning 13 errors as catcher in 48 games in 2013, so it is either an aberration or a sign of sub-par D. Only 1 error in 34 catching games in 2014.

Also, his caught stealing % has been weak in recent years, much stronger early in career - possible sore arm?
