Twins Catcher Position

The Twins are likely expected to carry three backstops to start the season, but Gardy is planning on keeping his options open.

Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit are locks to make the club as primary catchers, but the Twins appear likely to carry another catcher on the roster. This comes as no surprise.

Drew Butera, who is on the 40-man roster, remains to be the favorite to win the job because of his defense and familiarity with the Twins pitchers. However, J.R. Towles, a former top prospect with the Astros, is expected to push Butera this spring.
