I understand the backup is never an exciting topic but I wish we had a better option then this. I think Weiters might hit a little better if we had an offensively competent enough backup to give him 35-40 games out from behind the plate. Even if some of those were at DH. I admit I know nothing about either candidates defensive skills. Is Caleb Joseph never going to be ready to even be a decent backup? I feel like we're giving other teams minor league retreads a shot without giving our own the opportunity. I thought he could hit a little.
