It makes sense considering our catching situation...going for some upside here. The guy's been injured a lot, had an excellent year last year when finally healthy and an excellent AFL season.
The roster will be tight...maybe....not sure Flowers and Phegley are performing much better than high A themselves.
I like this pick a lot.
We should be a lot better in 15 and 16...right when the Tigers' pitching rolls off their roster.
