Yankees Sign Catcher Sal Fasano
By mvyb, 26.07.2006, 10:36

According to the New_York_Times, the Yanks have gone out and acquired a new back-up catcher, Sal Fasano:
.
.
"July 26, 2006 -- ARLINGTON - Looking to upgrade their backup catching situation the Yankees acquired Sal Fasano from the Phillies last night for an undisclosed minor leaguer, The Post has learned.Fasano had been designated for assignment by the Phillies last weekend and immediately caught the Yankees' attention because he was with them in spring training in 2004 and spent the season with Columbus (Triple-A). Fasano, 34, is expected to replace Kelly Stinnett."
.
.
Fasano will be a sure offensive upgrade, last year (while he was with Baltimore) he put up these numbers:
-
.250 BA, 11HR, .310 OBP, .475 SLG
-
This year:
-
.243 BA, 4 HR, .284 OBP, .386 SLG
-
These numbers are all progressively higher then Stinnett's. Fasano might be able to drive in a couple of runs, every now and then...
Fasano also brings a .990 fielding percentage (365 innings) which is a bit better then Stinnett's .989 ( 222 innings). Fasano has been an everyday catcher for the past couple of years, so he will be available for many innings of work ( in case of an injury to Posada). 

Back in March, Philidelphia pitcher, Ryan Franklin told MLB.com, "Every guy [pitcher] loves to have someone back there who knows what he's doing and has total confidence in his game-calling. That's what we have with Sal. There's a reason he's stuck around so long."

Thumbs up to this signing.
