Excellent trade of a strength for a weakness.

I wonder where Hundley rests on the depth chart of backup catchers now? My guess is Caleb goes down and he's gets a bigger chunk of games in split time with Clevenger.

Remember, he's played in Petco his entire career...

Great backup catcher. Defensive metrics love him defensively. Has pop as Roy pointed out. Decent walk rate. Great pick up. Could put this together a few weeks ago when it was reported Hundley was available and Patton was being shopped for a catcher.

Does this mean Wieters may be shut down? Is the injury worse than expected?

Seems very likely that Wieters is headed for surgery.

I don't think this means anything in that regard. I think the O's wanted Patton gone and they managed to fill a ML need in doing so.

The O's probably held out for the cash. ;)
