      Marlins' Chad Wallach: Looks like top backstop

      Chad Wallach will start at catcher and will bat ninth Wednesday in Game 1 of the Miami Marlins' wild-card series with the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.Though Jorge Alfaro (when healthy) has retained the top spot on the Marlins' depth chart at catcher for much of this season, his struggles at the dish resulted in him ceding work to Wallach down the stretch. Wallach was behind the plate for three of the Marlins' final four regular-season contests, and his inclusion in the lineup for the team's postseason opener leaves little doubt that manager Don Mattingly views him as the top backstop for the time being.

      Marlins' Chad Wallach: Lands on injured list

      Chad Wallach was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday for an undisclosed reason, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.Wallach earned an Opening Day roster spot as the Miami Marlins' third catcher, but he'll be sidelined after Tuesday's move. The team didn't provide an explanation for the transaction. If his absence is related to the COVID-19 outbreak among the team's players, the Marlins wouldn't be allowed to say so without his permission. Francisco Cervelli and Ryan Lavarnway should handle the catching duties with Wallach on the injured list.

      Marlins' Chad Wallach: Big spring at plate

      Chad Wallach is expected to begin the season at Triple-A Wichita, but he was making a strong case for a big-league roster spot when spring training was suspended, going 7-for-18 (.389) with two home runs and a double.The 28-year-old took full advantage of the Grapefruit League opportunities opened up by Jorge Alfaro's strained oblique, but the delayed start to the regular season should give Alfaro more than enough time to recover and cut off Wallach's path to the 26-man roster. Even if Alfaro is healthy for Opening Day, Francisco Cervelli has a lengthy concussion history, and the odds are good Wallach will be needed in the bigs at some point.

A concussion the catcher suffered in late May lingered for the rest of the season, and he played in just four rehab games the rest of the season, with just one of those coming after the All-Star break.
