2012 Player Preview: JC Boscan

Written by Joe Lucia on .

boscanI missed this one yesterday....double shot of profiles coming today!

JC Boscan isn't going to be threatening Brian McCann's job in Atlanta this season, and he's not going to be threatening David Ross's job either. Boscan is what he is: a career minor league catcher who has only brief cups of coffee in the majors as a third catcher. He's been in the Braves organization since 2008, and has spent time in Gwinnett each season since 2009. His bat is pretty much nonexistent; last season for Gwinnett, he hit .185/.235/.222 over 61 games. He's not even an every day catcher down in Gwinnett anymore, splitting time with the host of minor league veterans the team has brought in over the past few seasons. Lately, he's split time with Wilkin Castillo and Clint Sammons, two guys no longer with the organization.

So if he can't hit, what does Boscan add to the organization? Simple: he's an experienced receiver that can help the Braves' young pitching a lot. The 32 year-old isn't a member of the team to get big hits or get on base, he's there to nurture the young pitching. He'll be splitting time in 2012 with Jose Yepez, signed as a minor league free agent this offseason. All of the Braves young catching talent is at the lower levels of the organization, so Boscan likely won't be pushed for a job any time soon. When he decides to retire, he'll probably have a coaching spot in the organization ready to go. But for now, he's just going to chill in AAA, taking care of the oodles of young pitching throughout the system. I don't think it's a bad move at all.
