Not looking good for Kyle Skipworth


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2013) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Wednesday's he isn't sure if prospect Kyle Skipworth will make the opening day roster. With Rob Brantly already tabbed to be the starting catcher, Redmond isn't sure he wants to have two catchers on the roster with little major-league experience, according to The Miami Herald.

"To have two young guys like that is not an ideal situation," Redmond said. "I feel comfortable with 'Skippy,' but at the same time I'm nervous having two young guys back there. So we'll have to see how that plays out. All those are issues and things we have to take into account. That's why it's going down to the last day, to make those decisions."


Skipworth catches more attention


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2013) Jeff Mathis' broken collarbone injury that will keep him out for at least six weeks has left the Marlins scrambling to find a backup catcher for opening day. A possible solution could be prospect Kyle Skipworth, who has sputtered in the minors since being selected with the sixth overall pick in the 2008 MLB Draft. "I like him," manager Mike Redmond, a former catcher, told MLB.com. "He's a big, physical guy for a catcher. ... Obviously, we're looking for one of those young kids to step up. Any time you get guys playing time in big league spring training, you see what you've got. You see how they handle the pressures."

Skipworth still on Marlins' radar


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2013) The Sun-Sentinel reports while 2008 first-round pick (sixth overall) Kyle Skipworth hasn't lived up to the expectations of being an elite prospect, the Marlins haven't given up on the soon-to-be-23-year-old catcher. "Kyle's done a great job for a big guy behind the plate," president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said. "He's gotten himself where he can be a major league catcher. His pedigree coming in was that he was going to be an offensive player and we see flashes of that. For him, it's just consistency and confidence. It's still there, very much there at 23 years old. We thought the big hurdle would be the catching part of it. At worst case we'd have an offensive first baseman, but he's taken to the catching very well. You can cross the catching off for the time being."
