Jays Sign - Henry Blanco Veteran Catcher
Henry Blanco - yes, 41 year old Henry Blanco. Not sure where this fits, but I guess if you obsolutely need a catcher who can catch a knuckleball. The veteran will give the Jays some needed depth at catcher. Blanco signed for 750,000, but its not guaranteed and he may not make the 25 man roster. Josh Thole is considered to be the back up catcher, he has plenty of experience catching Dickey. But if he were to be injured, Blanco will be able to easily step in. This season will probably be Blanco's last, but this shows how most veteran players view the potential for the Jays in 2013.
