Backup Catcher Situation Shaken Up

La Velle E. Neal III just reported that C Jose Morales will need surgery on his wrist and will be expected to miss 6-8 weeks. It sounds like Morales’ wrist had been bothering him for some time, so it sounds like it’s just minor surgery to repair a strained tendon.
