    • He must play 10 games or start 5 games in the year or previous year in the majors to be qualified at a pos. Player that do not meet this requirement are list as util. He can get c eligiblity when he meets these requirements. The question is when or if. Seattle has 2 catcher on roster that are better catcher and no many bats to push him out of the DH pos. He will have to prove that he can earn time at catcher in spring training. It was interesting to me to watch the Yankees call Austin Romine(I dont think I spelled that right) from A-ball when Martin got hurt with Montero already on the team. That tells me that the Yanks did not want him behind the plate at any cost.

    • Makes little sesne they list him at Util. which puts him in the group with Papi. I have notices on Mock Drafts that there is no way to filer for Utils. you basically have to wait until they scroll up the list
