With injuries to catchers becoming a thing in the Nationals organization, it should come as no surprise to see that the latest transaction post from Baseball America has Washington signing two of them along with a shortstop:
- C Kevin Flynn
- C Robert “Thor” Meeks
- SS Jose Savinon
Flynn is a product of Hofstra University, where he was a C-DH from 2010 to 2012 and played briefly (i.e. one game) in the American Association (Independent).
Meeks graduated from Marshall University in 2012 but went undrafted, presumably after poor showing in his senior season that saw his line drop from .257/.337/.444 to .227/.349/.325.
Nothing could be found on Savinon, so the logical inference is that he is an international free agent.
