Astros send two minor leaguers to Angels for C Hank Conger
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(11/5/14) The Astros have acquired veteran backup catcher Hank Conger from the Angels for fellow catcher Carlos Perez and right-hander pitcher Nick Tropeano.
Conger compiled a .221/.293/.325 stat line in 2014 with four home runs and 25 RBI.
Hank Conger delivers career-high five RBIs
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/14) Angels catcher Hank Conger belted a three-run homer and had a career-high five RBI in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Blue Jays. Conger's 3-for-4 day upped his average to .314/.364/.569 in 51 at-bats.
Conger had an RBI double and RBI single in addition to his three-run, sixth-inning blast, his third homer this season.
|2014 summary: Though he was once again backed up Chris Iannetta, Hank Conger caught nearly 45 percent of the Angels' games, making him more like an understudy than a backup. The playing time evidently wasn't consistent enough for him to make any strides at the plate, though. His numbers basically dropped across the board, sticking him with a Nick Hundley-like .618 OPS.|
Playing time status: Because Conger's bat is what made him a prospect in the first place, his failure to deliver with part-time at-bats made him expendable for the Angels, who traded him to Houston this offseason for Nick Tropeano and Carlos Perez. Of course, at least with Jason Castro still around, the Astros can't go all-in with him either.
2015 outlook: Still only 26, Conger gets a fresh start with an organization that may value his skill set a little more than the Angels did, but role remains a roadblock to any sort of breakthrough. In theory, Conger could be a high-contact catcher in the A.J. Pierzynski mold, but with so many hurdles to clear, he's an AL-only flier at best.
