According to Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, the Mets are targeting Robinson Chirinos and Drew Butera as backup catcher options.
The Mets were expected to be buyers in the catcher market, so that doesn’t come as a surprise. What does come as a surprise is who they have chosen to target. Chirinos is going to be 36-years old in 2020 and is coming off the best season in his career. Those things don’t usually mix well. Chirinos is also a poor defensive catcher, he ranks below average in both pitch framing and pop time.
