2 catching propects to think about
Tim Federowicz AA-Portland Age 23
BA .333 OBP .377 SLG .521 OPS .898
Federowicz is the best fielding catcher in the system. His hitting
is a surprise so far this year.
From Sox Prospects.com: "Extremely strong and accurate arm with a
quick release. Outstanding at throwing runners out. Quick instincts.
Calls a good game and handles the pitching staff well. Working on
refining his blocking skills."
Daniel Butler Hi-A Salem 24 years old.
Underwent TJ Surgery in 2007 so he may be a little behind age wise.
He is not listed in the Red Sox Top 20 (according to
Soxprospects.com)....or even in the next 20 for that matter. He shows
up at #41....but right now he is the leading hitter among all Red Sox
BA .342 OBP .444 SLG .737 OPS 1.181
From Sox Prospects.com: "Above-average defensively with a slightly
above-average arm, nice glove, quick footwork. Great game caller."
Neither will be of any help this season....or probably even 2012....
but someday we may look back at this season's catching and all
It looks like veteran McKenry is our only on ready to help this season

I think if Lackey struggled today there would be a bit of a crisis
confidence with Saltalamacchia. But as long as he doesn't appear to
be screwing up the staff I think the team will give him more time to
see if he can come around offensively
