From MLB.com:

The article addresses the organization’s catching situation…but the one comment that I found interesting:

Further down the depth chart, Dane Sardinha will have a chance to win a spot on the 25-man roster with a solid Spring Training. Sardinha, a second-round pick in the 2000 First-Year Player Draft, spent the past two seasons at Triple-A Louisville. Miguel Perez, 22, made the sizeable leap from high Class A Sarasota to the Majors last season and is considered a promising prospect.

I don’t see this team carrying 3 catchers, though I guess it is possible with swing players like Freel and Womack on the roster. This would allow the use of Valentin more often as a PH, if you still had Sardinha in reserve.

    I’m starting to think that the team nickname is short for Redundants 😆
