D-Backs catcher Tuffy Gosewisch ready to prove doubters wrong

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/15) Diamondbacks catcher Tuffy Gosewisch, who is considered the favorite to win the starting catcher job this spring, is not worried about the skeptics who don't believe he can handle being Arizona's top catcher.

"That's more motivation for me," he told The Arizona Republic. "All that matters to me is that the team believes in me. It seems like they do and I believe in myself. The more people that come out and say that, that's fine. That's just more motivation for me to go out and prove that I belong and I can do it."

Gosewisch is not known for his offense, but the Diamondbacks are comfortable with going with a defense-first catcher because they believe the rest of the lineup will help pick up the slack offensively.

"I know that in my position, my number one job is the pitchers," he said. "So 80 percent, 90 percent of my game has to be focused on them. Knowing what they do best and knowing what the other team does best and trying to come up with a game plan -- there's not a whole lot of stats that can be put on that part of the game.

"If I can just contribute to the team offensively, I think that's what they're looking for. I'm not saying I'm going to be an All-Star, but I'm confident in my ability to hit. I know there's a lot of people out there who doubt that, but I know I can do it and I know people here think I can do it."

Tuffy Gosewisch is front-runner to be D-Backs' starting catcher

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/15) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart confirmed once again to MLB.com on Thursday that the team's search for a catcher is over. The team will head to camp with Tuffy Gosewisch as the starter, Rule 5 pick Oscar Hernandez as the backup and prospect Pete O'Brien on the cusp of making the major-league roster.

"We sat back and thought about it and talked to our guys internally, our coaching staff, and we're not going do to anything," Stewart said. "Tuffy Gosewisch has never had the opportunity to be a front-line guy, but we do know he's capable of handling the [pitching] staff. If we get some offense from him, it would be great.

"The kid Hernandez we know, through our scouting reports, is a good catch-and-throw guy. And we're not expecting any offense from him. So if we get it, that would be great. But even more importantly, we think that Peter O'Brien is going to be ready. Our coaching staff says he has a chance to break with us from spring training. And if not spring training, we expect to see him by May or June."

D-Backs won't add catcher due to prospect O'Brien's development

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/13/15) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Tuesday the team will not add a catcher to the roster in large part due to the development of prospect Pete O'Brien, according to The Arizona Republic.

"I've decided that I'm not going to pursue another catcher," Stewart said. "I talked with my people and my coaching staff. They believe that O'Brien is going to be around sooner than later. If that does happen, there's no need to go out and get another guy.

"We would have had to trade somebody we didn't want to trade to make it happen. We're going to be patient and allow the progression of O'Brien to take place and stand pat on that."

Tuffy Gosewisch is the only catcher on the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster with major-league experience. Rule 5 selection Oscar Hernandez, who spent last season with the Rays' low Class-A affiliate, will also be in camp competing for a roster spot.

The Diamondbacks acquired O'Brien in a trade with the Yankees in July. The 24-year-old O'Brien hit a career-best 34 home runs in 2014. He has a .267/.319/.534/.853 slash line over three minor-league seasons.

Diamondbacks have had trouble dealing for a catcher

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/15) The Diamondbacks haven't been happy with the cost of acquiring a catcher in a trade, according to the Arizona Republic.

We've not made a whole lot of headway in that area yet," general manager Dave Stewart said. "Without really giving up something that's going to cost us a player that we don't want to give away." Arizona dealt starter Miguel Montero to the Cubs in December, and the team is set to open the season with the unproven Tuffy Gosewisch behind the dish.

The club has been in contact with the Cubs regarding Welington Castillo, but nothing has materialized yet. Stewart said rival clubs are asking for Arizona's "top guys" in exchange for a catcher. 

Tuffy Gosewisch's first hit is a home run

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/14) Diamondbacks backup catcher Tuffy Gosewisch finally connected for his first hit of the season Tuesday against the Cubs.

Gosewisch's only hit happened to be his first home run of the season. Though, it didn't make much of an impact in a 9-2 loss. Gosewisch connected for a solo home run off Jason Hammel in the sixth inning Tuesday.
