He’s BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After a questionable “injury”, George Kottaras made his return to the Major League field against the Tampa Bay rays. His return came in a crucial spot. The ‘pen gave up 3 runs and were looking for more, when George made a beautiful play at the plate to tag out fellow catcher Greg Zaun to prevent the game from getting out of hand. Then to end the inning, Kottaras threw out an attempted base-stealer at 3rd base to end the inning.

With 3 Catchers on the active roster, and Jason Varitek being a bit banged up, the likelihood of George receiving good playing time is a possibility. The only foreseeable issue is with catching Wakefield. Victor Martinez showed that he could do a decent job handling the knuckleball, and yet that job has been George’s for 99% of the season so far. Look for George to possibly return to his normal duties, and pushing V-Tek out of the picture.

Hey Chris,
Kottaras did have a few really nice plays at the plate that night. I was thoroughly impressed. I wonder what they’ll do with him now that V-Mart can catch Wake.
