Simply amazin' - and tragic. I imagine Plawecki gets the heavy workload now.

And... I venture to say that this kind of an injury to the throwing arm of a catcher that seems to fight every day to stay off the DL... is a deal breaker

Mack Ade said...

Who can we pick off the Marlins roster?

Reese Kaplan said...

J.T. Realmuto is hurt himself.

Mack Ade said...

Tampa Bay?

Let's not react too soon. It's not definite as of now that he needs surgery. And if Plawecki can handle the starting job, it gives us a chance to see what Nido can do.

Thomas Brennan said...

I will be very surprised if Nido can hit MLB pitching. May I be pleasantly surprised.

Thomas Brennan said...

Does anyone think, if d'Arnaud does need surgery, if we can or should try to acquire C Tucker Barnhart from the Reds? Career .257/.329/.370 catcher, good against steals. Not sure what it would take to pry him from the Reds.

Mack Ade said...

Everybody loved young starters.

The Nats DFA'd Miguel Montero today. Worth looking into?

Mike Freire said...

Isn't Jose Lobaton in Vegas? I am sure that he is veteran insurance, at least for the short term.

I like Bill's idea, too.

bill metsiac said...

Yes, he's there, but not on the 40. If Travis goes to the 60-day, thatthat will clear a spot.

Met monkey said...

Ditto, or it may be time to put our centerfield gold glove into one of those western town goldrush scales to see what it pays out in a catcher.

Reese Kaplan said...

I'd be fine with Lobaton as a backup. His veteran status will not guarantee the lions share of starts .
