Saltalamacchia To Test Free Agency For 2016 Season
Former Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia wants to test the free agent market for 2016 over the Winter. His current team—the Arizona Diamondbacks—want Salty back, but he feels the marketplace might be more lucrative and also secure him a starting job somewhere. The 30-year old backstop played in 79 games for the D-Backs and Marlins this year—hitting .225 with 9 HRs and 24 RBIs. In his four seasons wearing Carmine Hose, Salty hit .243 with 55 HRs and 181 RBIs. In nine MLB seasons, he is a .240 hitter with a total of 98 HRs.
