Catching Duos

While thinking of subjects to post about, I was watching the game and marveling at how well our two catchers are playing right now. Even though he went hitless in the opener, Will Smith directly impacted the win with two great throws to nail runners trying to steal.

Austin Barnes is an equally adept defender and has also been contributing on offense to start the season. And who is in the wings but Keibert Ruiz, who had a short but impactful showing in spring training?

So I looked back in LA Dodger history, Brooklyn never really had a tandem-catching duo like this, to check and see what kind of players were the starters and their caddy.
