Probably.

He can hit. He has a good caught stealing ratio. But I see a lot of passed balls. The fact that he hit in the Dominican for Washington but was let go by them anyhow makes me curious if there was a problem.

The fact that he is a 24 year old catcher just now reaching AA isn't as big a deal as it would be for a different position. But I'm guessing he is just organizational filler.
