With the advent of the 3-batter minimum for relievers, I would not mind carrying 3 catchers instead of 8 relievers, especially if there is a catcher who has a good enough bat to DH and can play a decent 1B.

It worked for the Cubs when they carried Contreras, Montero, and Ross, and they did not even have the luxury of a DH.
