The Padres acquired catcher Rob Johnson from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations. Johnson, 28, appeared in 61 games for the Seattle Mariners in 2010, hitting .191, with 10 doubles, 2 HR’s, 13 RBI and 24 runs scored. Johnson has a career .200 major league average with 29 doubles, 2 triples, 5 HR’s, 42 RBI and 48 runs scored in 470 Ab’s over 161 games. Having said that, Johnson has been fairly productive in the minor leagues. In 2008, he hit (.305 .363 .441) with 9 HR’s, 30 doubles, 49 RBI in 112 games with 417 Ab’s. To date, Johnson would be the leading candidate going into 2011 to be the backup catcher for newly appointed starter, Nick Hundley. The Free Agent market for catchers is bleak. With the few remaining catchers on the market yet to sign deals with teams such as, veteran Free Agent, Bengie Molina, Gregg Zaun and former Padre Josh Bard.
