Nothing to really get excited about aside from McCann.
Jarrod Saltalamacchia is a name on that list that intrigues me. He is an offensive upgrade over what we have. The fact that he is a switch hitter is a bonus. However, I haven't personally seen him catch enough games to get a gauge on what kind of defense he plays. Also, given the thin catching market, it could take a lot of money and years to sign him.
