|Hank Conger among Toronto's targets |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(10/21/13) The Blue Jays have interest in acquiring catcher Hank Conger from the Angels, according to the Toronto Sun. They may attempt to trade for Conger or teammate Chris Iannetta to upgrade at the catcher position, currently held by J.P. Arencibia.
In his first season in which he did not play some portion in the minor leagues, Conger appeared in 92 games, hitting .249 with seven home runs and 21 RBI.

(8/15/13) Angels catcher Hank Conger is in the team's starting lineup Thursday against the Yankees.

|Chris Iannetta re-emerges as Angels' primary catcher |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/13) Chris Iannetta has taken over again as the Angels' primary catcher. After a stretch where Hank Conger was starting against right-handed pitchers, Iannetta has started 12 of 19 games since the All-Star break and seven of the last eight games through Tuesday.
"Hank's going to get time," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "Chris' defense is starting to play a lot more, and that's important. At the plate, he's been pretty consistent with what he's done. He's taken his walks, I think he's starting to feel a little more comfortable in the batter's box. But, I think on the defensive side, he's doing a good job."
|Throughout his minor-league career -- not just the heavy-hitting California and Pacific Coast leagues, but every step up the ladder -- Hank Conger was a safe bet for a .300 batting average, so naturally, Fantasy owners looked forward to day he'd get regular at-bats. The only question was if he could show enough defensively for manager Mike Scioscia, himself a former catcher, to give him that chance. Well, he got as close as he's probably going to get in 2013 -- starting about half the time behind the plate, mostly because of Chris Iannetta's struggles -- and it didn't live up to Fantasy owners' expectations. Not only did he hit just .249, but his less-than-disciplined approach actually gave him a lower OPS (.713) than Iannetta (.731). Catchers are often slower to develop offensively because of their responsibilities with the pitching staff, so at 26, Conger could still take a big step forward. But because he hasn't done enough to push Iannetta aside, he remains just a low-end AL-only option.
