Snyder will be a liability coming back from surgery and Doumit, who has improved his performance behind the plate but is simply not worth 7-8 million. Furthermore, I see Sanchez is a year and half away.
Maybe a call to Oakland for Kurt Suzuki may be in order. Oakland has enough depth at catcher and may deal, but to what extent of losing a prospect, who knows.
Suzuki’s contract. 2011 $3,400,000, 2012 $5,000,000, 2013 $6,450,000, 2014 (Team Option) *$8,500,000, $650k Buyout.
Not a great offense threat but handles pitchers well and is good defensively and throwing out runners.
There is really nobody else out there in FA worth speaking of in the next couple of years at catcher.
Give’em a call Neil
