Both of the catchers at AAA are organizational guys. And Carlos Paulino is not ML ready. They would likely try to make a move like they did with Fort 2 years ago.

He is a solid guy and a good player. Where does that leave the Pirates if Tony Sanchez or Martin gets hurt?

Ultimate Team Player

I think Lambo has just finally matured and is ready to fulfill his potential. I just hope they give him a shot now in RF, now that they did not trade for one. I would platoon him with Tabata and see how it goes. If Tabata does not start producing, replace him with Presley.

Only good out of that is what Presley, Harrison, and Tony Sanchez have done this last week to make up for the losses

I was just thinking that this is the slot that opens for Lambo to be moved to the 40 man. Now what will be the excuse not to try him?

Takes away the need for a decision on what to do with the 3 catchers for the remainder of the season. Who goes on the 40-man? I believe they actually have two spots available now, though Wandy would take one if he returns. Maybe Lambo gets a shot now since they didn’t make a trade.
