Cubs know catching depth could end up being critical this summer

Jose Lobaton:

Here is another veteran catcher option. The 36-year-old has played in 413 MLB games from 2009-2018 and is a .215/.293/.319 hitter. He was brought to the Cubs organization last year before being released. Now he is back in camp. Most of his MLB career was spent with the Nationals and Rays, while also playing with the Padres and Mets.

P.J. Higgins:

Drafted in the 12th round of the 2015 draft by the Cubs, Higgins has played around the infield in the minors. In 2019 he hit .281/.349/.416 with 10 home runs between the Smokies and Iowa Cubs. He has had a successful minor league career as a whole and one day might just get his shot at the majors. In addition to catcher he has played first, second and third base.

Cubs camp begins very soon and before we know it we (should) be watching spring games. The roster questions will be answered over the next month.
