    Ivan Herrera looks like he's on track to be MLB ready mid 2021. And they seem to like him a lot.

    The guy came out of nowhere.

    Also, Julio Rodriguez is a solid catching prospect.

    Knizner has not improved defensively at all, he needs the automated strike zone to be invented for him to stay at catcher imo.

    He might be better off as a C/1B/3B long term type player, which could work in a 26th man roster spot. Along with Edman being the depth player at 2B/SS/3B/LF/RF to compliment him.

    You can hold both on roster spots with a more permanent backup at Catcher.

    Looking to 2021 on paper right now, I think Knizner should get the majority of playing time.

    But for now, I want Yadi to start, Wieters to play backup once a week, and Knizner to be in AAA keeping that bat fresh. If Yadi goes down for an extended period, Knizner can take over as starter
    Right.

    And you have to assume one of Yadi/Weiters will miss a lot of time due to injury at some point. We are going to see Knizner on the MLB roster plenty this year, I'm sure of it.

    You need 3 catchers on the 40 man, we now have 3 catchers on the 40 man.

    Middle/end, it's certainly possible. They are bullish on him like they were with Yadier at this point. He'll probably spend the majority of this season in AA

    Why?

    Fangraphs already has him as our 4th best prospect, and he was the youngest player at his level this year and went to the AFL

    He's currently Yadier 2.0 but with a better bat (Peoria is a pitchers league and he did great, especially for a 19 year old)
