by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"He and John are working on a couple of things," Showalter said. "I've seen John do some things with guys that I didn't think was possible. I keep a real open mind about anything with a catcher here. I think John very quietly is one of the best I've ever been around, but he doesn't make everybody do it exactly the same. We'll see how it plays out.

"He's very engaged. He knows what the job description requires and he's trying to bring it. I think we all know offensively he's capable of better, but his damage has always good."

J.P. Arencibia might not get a lot of starts in September


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"It's obvious what they want to do," Arencibia said. "I get it. They want to look at young guys and see what they can do. I have been around enough. When I came back from Triple-A playing every day, my numbers were there."

Arencibia hit .262 with six home runs and 20 RBI in his first 17 games following his promotion after the All-Star break. Unfortunately, he entered play Sunday mired in a 5-for-50 slump.

"The only thing I can do is come in every day and take it day by day," Arencibia said. "It's out of my hands. I can't dictate what they do with me. That's their decision. When I came back after the All-Star break, you saw the production. When I stopped playing, it made it tougher, that's the bottom line. When I was playing every day, the numbers are the numbers."

J.P. Arencibia not an option behind the plate


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

J.P. Arencibia a worthwhile second catcher


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) The Rangers recalled J.P. Arencibia, heretofore a catcher, from Triple-A Round Rock Wednesday, but not to play catcher. Instead, he's taking over as the team's regular first baseman.

That's bad news for Rangers fans, but as is always the case when a catcher-eligibility player becomes a full-timer at some other position, it's noteworthy in Fantasy.

Catchers -- true catchers -- require regular rest, typically sitting every fourth or fifth game, which causes their totals to lag behind those of full-time players. Conversely, catcher-eligible players who don't require regular rest have an advantage at the position.

The Rangers don't really have anyone else who can play first base. Carlos Pena is gone, and Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland aren't coming back. Arencibia will get his at-bats. They may be ugly and not yield much better than a .200 batting average, but he'll get them.

So why the enthusiasm? For what Arencibia lacks in every other facet of the game, he can hit the ball out of the ballpark, and in leagues that require two catchers, that's enough to make him startable. Two-catcher leagues are typically Rotisserie, after all, and home runs aren't so easy to find on the waiver wire these days.
