Is he really a good defensive catcher? My recollection is he had an arm but wasn't great overall, just good so long as he had the bat. Phillies talked a lot about improving his pitch-framing but then they bailed on him.
And hopefully Marchan gives Stubbs competition next year.
Again (referencing other thread where it was suggested Phils should sign Segura if he took a minor league deal), teams have roster limits now. Would you cut Garcia at this point in the AAA season? (Friscia appears to be on development list so you could cut him first but Garcia would still be out of a job).
Of course if JT goes on the IL that's a whole other discussion.
And the Alfaro of old could have played OF or 1B for this team.
