According to multiple reports, the Angels are seeking help for their backup catcher position. Hank Conger is the front-runner in camp, hitting .417 in Cactus League play, but his erratic throws to second base have given the team pause. While Conger has pledged to straighten out the issue in time for Opening Day, it makes sense if the Angels are in the market for a better defensive alternative to starter Chris Iannetta. The other catchers in camp are 29-year-old John Hester, who is on the 40-man roster and 32-year-old Luke Carlin, who isn't. The two have combined to play 147 major-league games.
