Ross a 'proven' player
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (2/10/2013) Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Saturday the expectation is Jarrod Saltalamacchia and David Ross will share the catching duties at the beginning of the season, pushing Ryan Lavarnway back to Triple-A Pawtucket. For right now, I think our expectations [are] Salty and Ross, theyre the two proven guys, Cherington said. We signed Ross for a reason and Salty has continued to build on each year and added some things and gotten better. Hes a power threat, capable of being one of the best catchers in the league. Weve seen that. Lavarnway has come a long way. We think hes going to be a really good player for us. Sometimes the clock doesnt start exactly when the player wants to. But hes proven at the Triple-A level that hes capable of helping a major-league team. Thats going to happen; we just dont know exactly when.
