Catchers who need a job in the wake of our injury




Former Brewer and Veteran Journeyman Catcher Paul Bako is available. He has a 231 career batting average but he is a veteran with experience behind the dish and he has some pop in his bat.      

Or how about Former Brewer Gary Bennett, he hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2008. His career average is 241, higher than Bako's.

Let's not forget Johnny Estrada if you want a vet behind the plate. His last appearance in the majors was in 2008( more recently than Bennett by 2 months, and his career average is 277.)

Here is a dark horse: Robinson Cancel last appeared for the Mets in the majors in 2009 and has a career .213 batting average but he is also a veteran. Another former Brewer.

Raul Casanova is another former Brewer who hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2008. He has a career .236 batting average and he is a solid veteran catcher.

Obviously Mike Rivera would salivate at coming back to Milwaukee, as he is currently playing at Double A for the Dodgers. He is batting .284 for Chattanooga and again, continuing with the theme, he is a solid veteran backstop. Career Major League Batting Average is .244.

I wouldn't put this in the "veteran" category, but Vinny Rottino is also toiling at Double A. He is with the Jacksonville Team,  a Marlin Affiliate and he is batting .272 and playing catcher.

The ultimate veteran with a little bit of a bat would be Damian Miller, but he hasn't played in the majors since 2007 while never officially announcing a retirement. He owns a .262 career batting average, and word is the only team he wanted to play for was the Brewers at the end of his career.


Come on Doug. Don't tell us their aren't veteran catchers available!
