On my podast Tuesday night, Bates said that he was a catcher until his last year in college. He said he still goes and catches bullpens when needed in spring training. He should try to get some time behind the plate. I think all three of them go to AAA and move around, like Nick said.
I've never seen Bates play, but I think its safe to assume if he could catch at a Major league level, he would certainly be playing there.
