Looks like Wil Nieves has won the backup starting catcher's job since the Diamondbacks have released Rod Barajas today. Such a shame, as it was nice to see Rod come full-circle in his career with the team he made a name for himself with. all I can say is I wish "Hot Rod" the very best. If he doesn't catch on with anyone else, I wonder if he'll hang up his cleats and retire?
At the same time, I am excited to see how Will will do for us this season. Good luck to both Wil & Miguel Montero this season.
Here's the source I got the story from:
