Do-Hyoung Park wrote an article tonight on the role that Tanner Swanson, the Twins minor league catching coordinator, is having in big league camp. The Twins are putting a large emphasis on pitching framing and receiving.
"I think the industry has understood for a long time the value of receiving and pitch framing relative to other things that catchers have to do," Swanson said. "I don't know if the industry has been that in tune to how you can optimize these things."
There are quotes from Jason Castro and Ben Rortvedt on the value that they have found, not only from emphasizing the value, but from having data to validate or verify where they are.
