Latest Update The Marlins optioned Rob Brantly to Triple-A New Orleans on Monday. Mon Mar, 17, 12:48 PM
Owns a pretty good left-handed bat (for average) for the catching position, and he has some untapped upside as an all-round catcher.
Flaws: : A former outfielder, he's still learning the intricacies of the catching position. Must also prove himself against good left-handed pitchers.
A guy who was thought to be capable of providing a solid batting average with no power this season, Rob has been a disaster. Not only has he hit .225 in 204 big league at-bats but he's hit .186 in the minors this season including an improved .229 mark over his last 10 games. That's right, a .229 average is noteworthy here.
