The Amazing Catchers of Oklahoma County
For an organization whose major league catchers of the moment are best known for impersonating Mario Mendoza's weaker brothers, the Astros have assembled a trio of Bronx Bombers behind the plate in Oklahoma City. In over 200 at bats for the RedHawks this season, Robinson Cancel, Brian Esposito, and Emerson Frostad have combined to bat .327 with four home runs and 28 RBI. What's more Esposito and Frostad have made three appearances as pitchers as well, combining for 2 2/3 scoreless innings.
