Somebody will have to challenge Marte as the least-used player off the bench if Victor is headed to the DL. Shoppach obviously becomes our starting catcher, but who is the new backup? Toregas is the only other catcher on the 40-man roster, but he's struggling at Buffalo, it looks like he'd be overmatched in Cleveland. Any chance that we see Chris Gimenez instead? Westbrook could be moved to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.
Gimenez has played mostly at catcher this year, though in the past he's been a utility kind of guy, so his catcher defense probably isn't all that good. Anybody have a good grasp on what his defensive profile is?
He is fantastic at controlling the strike zone, so good that it actually makes his hitting numbers look a little weak. It's hard to amass extra-base hits when almost 25% of your plate appearances result in a walk.
