Roch Kubatko On The Orioles Decision To Move On From Matt Wieters And Add Wellington Castillo

Roch Kubatko covers the Orioles and blogs for MASN Sports.

Roch joined Ed and Rob to talk about the Orioles adding Wellington Castillo to their roster.

Roch started by talking about the addition of Wellington Castillo instead of bringing back Matt Wieters and Roch said "the bottom line is they weren't going to pay the money it was going to take to keep Matt, Scott Boras is going to look for a huge deal because he's the best catcher on the market now...catchers now are just holding the spot until Chance Sisco is ready and he's in triple A."

Roch also went on to talk about the new hot stat in baseball of pitch framing and how that may have factored in to the decision to move on from Wieters and bring in Castillo.
