Ruben Amaro Jr. addressed the media on Wednesday after making the signing of starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez official. The team also shared news that they brought catcher Lou Marson back to the organization and parted ways with the once highly touted catching prospect Sebastian Valle.
Ruben says he still believes in the talent of his ball club but points out that if they can't stay on the field and battle through serious injuries for much of the season, they'll be in trouble.
It's been a tough go of it for Amaro this offseason. No matter what he says or does, fans seem to be unhappy with the direction he's chosen to take the club in.
And you all thought Ruben didn't have a strategy.
In addition to Marson, the team also signed Tony Gwynn Jr., right-handed pitcher Sean O'Sullivan, and outfielder Dave Sappelt to minor league deals with invites to spring training in Clearwater.
