Astros | Purpura: Catching is top priority

Tue, 30 Jan 2007 23:20:34 -0800

The Houston Chronicle's Brian McTaggart reports Houston Astros general manager Tim Purpura wants to make catcher a top priority to upgrade in the future, which is why he has selected C Maxwell Sapp and C Ralph Henriquez in the past two drafts. "It's something we've identified over the last several years as a need," Purpura said. "To me, it's one of the hardest positions to fill nowadays. I don't think a lot of kids are catching like they used to. It's not a real favored position, but it's obviously critical to your success."

The Houston Astros selected C Maxwell Sapp, of Bishop Moore School (Fla.), with the No. 23 pick in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft. Sapp is a left-handed hitting catcher with power, but scouts like his bat more than his defense. So it's likely he will change positions in the pros.
