Dodgers Roster: More Thoughts on the Options at Catcher

The major league arrival of Keibert Ruiz on Saturday spurred many insightful discussions among fans of the Dodgers, specifically how the team might view its situation at catcher for the next several years.

As it stands, there are five backstops of significance in the organization. Will Smith is the high man on the totem pole for the moment, despite having been placed on the injured list Saturday with neck soreness. Right beside Smith is the 30-year-old journeyman Austin Barnes, who will be the primary catcher until Smith is ready to return.
