JP Arencebia signed

  • 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.
