Twins' Kurt Suzuki: Has competition for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kurt Suzuki will likely find himself in a spring training battle for the starting catcher job now that the Minnesota Twins have acquired John Ryan Murphy from the Yankees in exchange for Aaron Hicks.

As the incumbent Suzuki may be perceived to have a bit of an advantage, but Murphy had the edge in batting average, OBP, slugging percentage, wOBA, and wRC+ last season, so as long as the Twins view the defense as comparable, Suzuki could see a noticeable dip in playing time.

by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader with the Angels, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

This comes as no surprise as Suzuki caught Game 1, going 1-for-4 with an RBI in the Twins' 4-3 loss. Chris Herrmann will catch for Mike Pelfrey in the nightcap.
