From the Globe and Mail -
Gregg Zaun and Bengie Molina shared the catcher’s job last season, but both are free agents. The Blue Jays offered Zaun a two-year, $6-million package, but he turned it down and is said to be entertaining offers from the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees as a backup. The Cincinnati Reds, who have David Ross in line to be their catcher, have also expressed interest.
Zaun’s lifetime American League OWP is .482 – and since 2000, in the A.L. as well, his OWP has been .505 (in 1,663 PA).
That’s not Cooperstown material. But, it’s not the pits. Flaherty’s Yankees’ OWP was .263 – if you need a baseline.
Considering that the Yankees have no one in the organization now behind Posada, I’m on board with the chase for Zaun. He should be a good back-up catcher – maybe the best one for the Yankees in a long time.
