Proof positive that even "beloved" Bullpen-level Catchers have tangibly intangible value (to somebody).

Thanks for the memories, Drewby, and thanks for your part in bolstering our minor league pitching depth......I have a sneaking suspicion you'll be back again someday.

It's gotta be, that 5-o'clock shadow is a dead giveaway.

Factoid: Juan effectively had no platoon split, holding righties to a .692 OPS and lefties to .690.

If I recall correctly, though, he struggled against older switch hitters late in playoff games.

So much for my near total suppression of that memory. Thanks, Chief.



Here's how that inning went for Juan, for those looking for a punch in the gut to start the day...

Single
Wild pitch
Walk
Single (run scored)
Strikeout
Home run (3 runs scored)
Double
