Baker on DL, Petersen recalled

The Marlins on Saturday placed catcher John Baker on the 15-day disabled list, retro to May 13, with a right flexor muscle strain.

 

Outfielder Bryan Petersen was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

 

The Marlins added catching depth on Thursday when Brett Hayes was recalled from Triple-A.

 

In Spring Training, Baker was bothered by a right forearm muscle strain, and he missed considerable time.

 

Ronny Paulino has been playing mroe of late behind the plate. Paulino initially was platooning with Baker.

 

Outfielder John Raynor, who was returned to the Marlins after being a Rule 5 claim with the Pirates, is now playing for Triple-A New Orleans. Raynor had been seeing some action in extended spring in Jupiter.

Considering Baker's severe lack of power, it doesn't shock me to hear that he was banged up. At least, I hope that the injury was the cause.

 

I am quite comfortable with Paulino being the everyday starter. What a great pickup he was in that trade, and we gave up very little. Props to the FO for that one.

I hope Baker recovers soon, but I'm not too worried about this. I've been hoping that Paulino get more ABs for awhile now. I'm a huge fan of his.

 

I hope the Marlins make him the everyday catcher and just use Hayes on rest days.

 

EDIT: Looks like his RHP splits are worse than I remembered, but I still think he can be used everyday.

With his LHP splits being so awesome, there is a balance point or he would be an all-star. Still, its obvious that Paulino can really hit, and I think he could do much better against righties than he has done so far. Maybe never an all-star, but we could and have done a lot worse than Paulino at catcher.

I think Paulino will do better against righties as he gets a chance to hit more often against them.

 

He has 901 career ABs against them. He's hot right now, sure, but I think its unrealistic to think he's going to magically start mashing RHP.

 

Yes, but those at bats have come sporadically.

 

Also, I said "better", not "mash". If he kills lefties and does okay against righties (.230ish), that will be good enough in my book.

You pretty much saw it Saturday night. He's one of the better defensive catchers in the org (except pretty much an average arm), but dosen't bring much of a bat with him.

Below average, actually. And he isn't good at fielding bunts. I wouldn't be surprised if he got Willinghamed later in his career.

You only "Willingham" someone if you need their bat in the lineup and their glove isn't good enough to play. That is not Brett Hayes.

 

Misread by me. I thought BroncoBob was referring to Baker.

 

I thought so too.

 

Either way Hayes is a stop gate right now, nothing more, nothing less.
