Catcher continues to be a black hole for the Los Angeles Angels

The Angels probably wish they never dealt Mike Napoli over the winter as they have had a black hole behind the plate. 28-year old righty swinging Jeff Mathis is the Angels’ starting catcher and he’s a good defender. Too bad he hits like a pitcher. Mathis has played in 68 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 36 for 200 (.180 avg, 490 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 2 homers, 17 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Mathis has whiffed 61 times already this year as he often appears like he has a hole in his bat. 28-year old righty swinging Bobby Wilson might start getting a little more P.T. Wilson has played in 36 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 12 for 65 (.185 avg, .537 OPS) with 1 run scored and 4 RBIs. 23-year old switch-hitting Hank Conger should get another look soon for the Angels. He has played in 50 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 33 for 154 (.214 avg, .654 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 5 homers and 16 RBIs. The Angels need to make some changes behind the plate as they are getting absolutely no production out of this motley crew with the bats.
