(2/13/13) Diamondbacks catchers Wil Nieves and Rod Barajas are battling in spring training to earn the backup job for the team behind Miguel Montero, reports MLB.com. With Montero expected to miss time to play in the World Baseball Classic, that leaves plenty of competition for the spot for Nieves and Barajas. "It's wide open," manager Kirk Gibson said.

|Rod Barajas endured his worst campaign in years last season and is clearly on the downside of his career at age 37. He batted just .206 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI in 104 games as he lost playing time to backup Michael McKenry. His .343 slugging percentage was more than 60 points below his career mark and his RBI total was his lowest since 2007. The Pirates declined his option for 2013 but Barajas will likely land somewhere and split time behind the plate. Since he still has decent pop for a backstop, plan on targeting Barajas in single-league formats on Draft Day. (Updated 12/4/12)|
