The Superfluous Catcher

Three catchers?

From MSG -

Torre said the Yankees will open the season with 11 pitchers. He didn't rule out Wil Nieves, who is out of options, making the roster as a third catcher. ...

Oh, that's going to be a useful thing.

Hmmmmm, maybe he isn't impressed by Stinnet this spring?

====================

They're about the same offensively this spring. The only advantage I see of Nieves over Stinnett is that Nieves is younger. Stinnett has much more experience than Nieves. With both, at this stage of their careers, WYSISYG.
