Latest Update Blue Jays have decided to go with Josh Thole as their backup catcher at the start of the season   Wed Mar, 26, 05:37 PM

Thole beat out Erik Kratz for the honor of backing up Dioner Navarro. Navarro hit a career-high 13 home runs in just 89 games with the Cubs last season and has hit .290 or higher in each of his last two seasons. Add in that he will play his home games in one of the most homer friendly parks in all of baseball and you got yourself a sneaky late round catcher worth targeting.Analyst: Michael Pichan

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Makes solid contact consistently well. Calls a good game and displays leadership ability. His receiving skills earn him most his playing time.
Flaws:  : Doesn't have big-time home-run power, so he is not a natural when it comes to producing runs in MLB. He's more of a backup, as a result.

    Blue Jays designate Henry Blanco for assignment, call up Josh Thole
  • Hopefully with Thole coming back to the majors, R.A. Dickey will start to right the ship. Thole caught Dickey last season in New York and it's possible that with Thole behind the plate, Dickey will start pitching more like he did last season. It is worth noting that Dickey was dominant in his last start with Henry Blanco behind the dish. Thole's return to the big leagues can only mean good things for R.A. Dickey.Analyst:
