    I'd also like him as the backup. Alex Jackson just doesn't do it for me. I had hoped he could turn it around after we brought him here as a reclamation project but he just hasn't shown anything to me.

    Yeah, and the more I think about it, I like it more. Spending the whole year in the majors, working with the pitching staff and the coaches will be huge for his development, it might be a good strategy for the Braves if they want him as an everyday catcher next season.

    Plus we're going to have make a decision on d'Arnaud after this year. If Contreras has a productive season as the back up then AA might feel more comfortable moving on from d'Arnaud and spending that money elsewhere. Shea Langeliers will be ready sometime next year too. Langeliers defensively is already ready for the majors.
