Blue Jays Cashing in at catcher

Postby pkarr5000 » Tue Aug 12, 2003 7:40 pm

Toronto is turning to 25-year-old Kevin Cash to be their everyday catcher, the Toronto Sun reported. "He's going to be our catcher," general manager J.P. Ricciardi said. "Along with Guillermo Quiroz [in Double-A] those are our catchers of the future so it's to our advantage if we start easing him in faster. Tom [Wilson] and Greg [Myers] have done a great job for us but one's 33 and one's 37 and it's pretty evident that we're going in a different direction at some point."

Views
Cash was hitting .270 with eight homers, 37 RBI, and 28 doubles at Triple-A Syracuse. He's not going to match Myers and Wilson's combined production, but he'll put up decent numbers if he can maintain his batting average at the big league level.

Looks like trouble for Myers owners.

Effective when? Beginning this season or just into the future? (I have Myers at catcher, I need to know! LOL)

The way I read the article, the switch should take place immediately.

The Jays are now saying that they will start Cash at catcher 3-4 times a week. The rest of the starts at catcher will be split between Myers and Wilson, plus Myers will split time at DH with Phelps.

Basically, what this does is makes Cash, Myers, Wilson and Phelps all pretty much useless in fantasy leagues.
