Chris Stewart [1]

The Yanks have traded Chris Stewart to the Pirates [2] for a player to be named later. Mike Axisa has the skinny. [3]

Back-up catchers come and go and they tend to blur together in memory but Stewart was taut and hard–a prototype. Couldn’t hit but then again if he could he’d be a starting catcher. I enjoyed watching him work behind the plate. He has the GRRRRR that you want from a veteran catcher. Wish him well in Pittsburgh.
