Another excerpt from Robert Arthur's post today at BP

Dozens of other teams, including many in the middle of contention, can’t field catchers nearly at the same level. Consider Robinson Chirinos of the Astros, a 34-year old projected to be worth less than half as much at the plate as Grandal, with some of the worst framing in the league. Ponder Chris Iannetta on the Rockies, a 35-year-old on a cheap contract who was close to replacement level last year and projects no better this season. What about the Indians, whose current catcher depth chart consists of some combination of Kevin Plawecki and Roberto Perez?

First is under Yasmani Grandal.

Signed a one-year deal with the Astros in November for $8 million.

In the archive I ponder his defense while Tim laments the career path of Garrett Stubbs.
