So, now that Doumit and Jaramillo are beginning rehab stints, what does everyone think we should do with the catching situation? Obviously Jaramillo will replace Fryer(I believe by the end of the week), but more than likely won't get the primary starting spot over McKenry. But when Doumit comes back, possibly as soon as next week, Hurdle's going to have a big decision to make about who gets most of the starts the rest of the way(assuming Snyder won't be coming back this year).
McKenry's by far the better defensive catcher, and in the month+ that he's been the primary starter, the pitching staff's ERA has dropped from 3.51 to 3.20. I know it's a small sample size, but the staff seems very comfortable with him behind the plate.
Doumit's the better hitter, but McKenry hasn't been terrible by any means, hitting around .250. He may not be able to drive in runs the way Doumit can when he's in the zone(though that too has been fairly rare recently), but he isn't a full-on detriment to the lineup by any means.
So what does everyone think would be the better move?
