Miguel Olivo earning praise from starting pitchers


by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2013) Marlins catcher Miguel Olivo continues to earn praise from the team's starting pitchers. Jose Fernandez credited Olivo following his seven-shutout-innings, nine-strikeout performance Saturday night and Kevin Slowey followed suit after his most recent outing.

"For me, the whole game, it was me out there kind of being guided by Miguel Olivo," Slowey told MLB.com. "That guy has been playing baseball a long time. He's caught games that have been blowouts on both sides. He's caught close games. He's caught Cy Young winners. When you're in foreign territory over the course of the year, you look to him."

Although Olivo has been solid behind the plate, his offense has been lacking. He entered Monday against the Padres with one hit in his last 24 at-bats (.083).

(4/3/2013) Newly signed Marlins catcher Miguel Olivo made his first start Wednesday at Washington. He was behind the plate with Kevin Slowey on the hill.

"I hate to see him go," manager Dusty Baker said. "A lot guys on the team had come to know him. I knew him from before. Like I said, sometimes contractual things supersede. They preclude what you want to do."
