Diamondbacks' Josh Thole: Inks minor league deal with Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thole agreed to a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Thole was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays in 2016 after struggling at the plate to the tune of a .169 batting average over 50 games played. He has never been much of an offensive threat and will likely provide organization catching depth for the Diamondbacks in 2017.

Josh Thole: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thole cleared outright waivers and elected free agency, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

He has never been good at the plate, but Thole was so bad in 2016 (.474 OPS) that he eventually lost his job as R.A. Dickey's personal catcher late in the year. His familiarity with the knuckleballer may help Thole continue sticking around the majors though, as the Braves have a need behind the dish.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Loses spot-start role with Dickey in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thole has just four at-bats in September, far fewer than in any other month this season.

With R.A. Dickey seemingly moved to the bullpen for good, Thole -- Dickey's personal catcher -- is no longer needed to make spot starts behind the plate. His role on the team has been reduced to its lowest point of the season, and considering he lacks fantasy relevance even when seeing regular time, it's hard to imagine a fantasy league where Thole's worth owning.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Finding no room to play down stretch
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thole has received just two at-bats since signing a major league contract with the Blue Jays at the beginning of the month.

Thole's 2016 campaign has been one to forget. The 29-year-old came out of spring training as R.A. Dickey's personal catcher and in line to receive a solid amount of spot work spelling veteran backstop Russell Martin. Now sporting a career-low .155 average through 116 at-bats, Thole only gets on the field when Dickey is on the hill, and the catcher immediately comes off -- usually via a double-switch -- as soon as the knuckleballer is finished. Now with Dioner Navarro in the mix (and Dickey's next start being skipped), Thole is unlikely to see much, if any, playing time in the near future.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Returning to Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thole signed a major league contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Thole was DFA'd less than a week ago after the team acquired Dioner Navarro, but he'll now rejoin the Jays after clearing waivers Tuesday. He is knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's preferred catcher and will likely only be deployed down the stretch when Dickey is on the mound.
