- C J.P. Arencebia signed to 1 year contract
NOTES: Well, I would have rather kept AJ Pierzynski, but JP can catch. He’s another one of those guys much like Soto. Great catcher. Not a great hitter. JP has some pop – can hit a few home runs, but not terribly much else. Strikes out a lot. Had 148 of them in 2013.
So basically, we’ll have Soto & Arencebia splitting the catching duties in 2014. They say Soto will be the #1 guy with JP backing up, but my gut says it will be a lot closer to 50/50 than that statement.
