Arizona Diamondbacks 2012: A Look at Catcher


With the 2012 season just about 2 1/2 months from kicking off with pitchers and catchers, it is time to take a look at how the Arizona Diamondbacks stack up by position.  The next position I will look at is the catcher position.  We all pretty much know this is a position settled at starter, but what about after?

Starter: Miguel Montero

Backup: Henry Blanco

Might see an opportunity: Konrad Schmidt

Montero had a fabulous 2011, which included an All-Star appearance.  He hit .282 with 18 HR and 86 RBI and improved daily from a defensive standpoint.  He deserves a contract extension.  As for Blanco, it was iffy if he would return just because he nears retirement and he declined his option.  The Dbacks got a deal done anyway.  Will be nice to see some stability at the position.
