It looks like now that he's getting some regular playing time. He is gaining more confidence and adjusting to the big leagues. I'm not saying that he'll necessarily be a full time player. But, that he will be a reliable back up.

He had nowhere else to go!

Schoop seems to be adjusting quite well after an early rough patch.

it would be great if he becomes a viable back up option. But I think it is simply 2 ABs where he got a hold of a mistake.

I know they've each had a couple hits the last few days (which is eventually gonna happen no matter how bad you are)... but this Joseph / Lough combo just isn't gonna cut it on the MLB level

I think Joseph is a better defensive catcher than Clevenger. Also, is it coincidental that our pitchers are doing better when he is behind the plate? Now that he is playing semi-regularly. He is getting used to playing at a MLB level and it is showing in his offensive production.

 

GO CALEB!! :)

.170 average vs. 180 pounds

 

Which leads me to ask.....a 6'3" 180 pound catcher?  He should be glad they banned collisions at the plate.  He'd be a freakin' pancake.

2 for 3 tonight, 3 RBI's and a good sacrifice bunt, :)

now hitting .218 which is better than Davis, Flaherty and Lough. ;)

He's nine for his last 32.

 

Definitely heating up.

I hope so. His bat looks really quick right now. If he climbs, he could potentially rival Wieters short-term. He's throwing out basestealers at the same clip, and the rest of his defense has been very good.

If you go to his Wikipedia page. His minor league credentials are very impressive. So much so, that I think he would be a viable replacement for Wieters.

I have a hunch that Sisco is the long term solution.

 

As for Weiters, it stinks, he was on his way to 27 home runs and his best overall year by far.
