Brewers Designate George Kottaras For Assignment

6:55pm: GM Doug Melvin says that he is working on a trade involving Kottaras and hopes to complete it in a day or two, tweets Tom Haudricourt of the Journal-Sentinel.

11:03am: The Brewers announced that they designated catcher George Kottaras for assignment. In related moves, Milwaukee activated catcher Jonathan Lucroy from the 15-day disabled list, optioned infielder Jeff Bianchi to Triple-A and selected the contract of right-hander Jim Henderson.

Kottaras, 29, figures to draw trade interest in the coming days, when teams such as the Mets and Nationals could inquire about possible deals. He has a .209/.409/.360 batting line in 116 plate appearances this year, thanks to an impressive 25% walk rate. In parts of five MLB seasons, Kottaras has a .221/.326/.402 batting line.

Could this be like the Roberts situation?

I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up in the same place as Roberts did too.

If he just slaughtered everyone as much as he does Pittsburgh, then he’d be the best catcher in history!

Blue Jays could use a good Canadian boy behind the plate after JPA went down last night.

he’s in no way an upgrade over Gomes.

I can also suggest with the injury to Arencibia the Jays may be interested in him. Plus he is Canadian so that also does not hurt.
