For a guy like Nieto- you can nurse him along as a back up- very selective match ups, etc.- I assume if you get through the first year (Rule V)- then you can do what you need to after that.

As far as Flowers goes- the passed balls and dropping throws on plays at the plate was what surprised me the most in his dissappointing 2013- if he COULD play solid defense- then I'd take a .220 batting average with the homers that will come along with it- but of all the areas of the White Sox where I have "spring training optimism"- catching is not one of them.
