2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So with Tampa Bay trading away Jose Lobaton where does that leave them in terms of overall catching depth?
(Pete from Orlando )
They have Hanigan and Molina in the majors. After that they have a few generic minor-league backstops (Roman Ali Solis and Eddy Rodriguez) and a younger, potential backup catcher type in Curt Casali to round out the upper-minors. Deeper in the system they actually have some interesting prospects: Nick Ciuffo, David Rodriguez, and Oscar Hernandez. So they aren't necessarily great at the top levels, but as an organization they're okay. It's not like they could've kept Lobaton anyway. (R.J. Anderson)
