BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 It took injuries to two catchers ahead of him and a 50-game suspension to a third for Brad Davis to make his major league debut in 2010, but the relative health of the major league corps of backstops last year relegated him to his second full tour of Triple-A.
2011 An organizational soldier with seven seasons in the system, Davis finally got the call when the Marlins needed to replace Ronny Paulino after the latter's PED suspension in August. The main rationale for keeping their choices for John Buck's backup limited to Davis or Brett Hayes would be the familiarity either has with the stack of farmhands likely to get looks in The Show. That's a nice enough reason as these things go, but don't count on much offense in the 40-50 games that Buck isn't behind the plate. The argument for Davis over Hayes is a slightly better bat, but that's a choice between "dead" and "mostly lifeless."
