Saltalamacchia Back In 'The Show' With Snakes

After being cut by the Miami Marlins, former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the major leagues with the Arizona Diamondbacks. Salty had been languishing at AAA Reno (where he batted a dismal .188) before today's call-up. Even more oddly-spelled Arizona catcher Tuffy Gosewisch went on the DL—opening up a spot for Salty. This, after The Fish decided that their oddly-named young backstop ( J.T. Realmuto) was a better bargain than the high-priced and under-performing Saltalamacchia. We wish Salty the best in his return to "The Show".
