The deal is worth $2.5 million.
This is the third free agent catcher signing in three days (Chris Iannetta – Seattle Mariners, Geovany Soto – Los Angeles Angels). The catcher market is now really slim. Once Matt Wieters accepted the Baltimore Orioles qualifying offer, teams that needed a catcher moved quickly.
