Aracena to the Fish
As somewhat expected, the Bluefish have stolen All Star catcher Sandy Aracena from the Road Warriors. Aracena was nothing short of great in his two season stay with the dogs. Last year Aracena hit .239 but upped his average to .293 this year. Aracena is also a solid player behind the plate, commiting only 7 errors this year. In addition to the Warriors loosing their starting catcher, the AL website also shows that Nick Valdez (shown as Luis Valdez) has had his contract assigned to Lancaster, along with Trevor Marcotte. If all these moves have occured it leaves the Road Warriors with only 1 catcher.
