Inge: A legit backup catcher option?

5

The Tigers just DFAd the guy, who is owed $11.5 MM through 2012. Let's take a gander... Defensively In 376 games behind the plate, he's had a .995 fielding percent, thrown out 34% of stealers, but has a suspect 5.16 CERA and hasn't legitimately been a catcher since 2008 (although he's in his mid-30s, so he should be able to squat enough for our purposes). Offensively Yeah, he's having a career-worst year at the dish which, sadly, looks just like any other backup catcher. His career numbers aren't as impressive as I remember (career OPS of .691), but still put Butters and Rene2 to shame Butera This year .177/.208/.272 Career .187/.222/.284 Rivera This year .181/.244/.264 Career .212/.249/.311 Inge This year .177/.242/.242 Career .234/.304/.387 So what say you, worth kicking the tires? Any chance we could throw in an expendable prospect to get los Tigres to eat some salary?
