Ryan Doumit still open to catching
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A comment by former Twins teammate Brian Dozier led new Braves catcher Ryan Doumit to receive a call from a panicked Fredi Gonzalez. Dozier had claimed that Doumit would never catch again after a collision resulted in a concussion last August.

"[Gonzalez] was like, 'What am I hearing?' I was like, 'I'm hearing the same thing and that's news to me.'" Doumit told MLB.com. "But I assure you I have every intention on catching and I want to catch."

Doumit added his belief that Dozier's comments were misinterpreted and that his one-time teammate apologized for the confusion.

He will not start, however. He will be used as a backup to Evan Gattis, who has taken over for the departed Brian McCann.

Ryan Doumit moves to RF to clear up PT for Chris Herrmann
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Sunday catcher Ryan Doumit will primarily play in right field with Oswaldo Arcia and Chris Parmelee in the minors, freeing up playing time for Chris Herrmann as Joe Mauer's backup.

"Herrmann does a good job behind there, and I like Doumit in right field," Gardenhire said, per MLB.com. "[Doumit] is able to go out there, because we don't have him in the catching role, so he's doing all of his work out there. It's just easier for him to relax out there, because it's easier than catching, which beats you up a little bit."

Gardenhire added Doumit will see time behind the plate, but he has more experience in right field than Herrmann.

"He's going to catch," Gardenhire said of Doumit. "I don't want him to get away from that, but I want as many left-handed bats as I can in there. And he's more comfortable in right field than Herrmann. My other option is to put Herrmann in right field, but he hasn't played there, so I want to give him more time to work out there."
