This would definitely be reaching into the bottom of the barrel, but if the Dodgers are unable to acquire Maldonado or Cervelli, then Nick Hundley could be one of the lower tier options to back up Austin Barnes. Hundley certainly knows the NL West well as he has played for the Padres, Giants, and Rockies. Hundley has hit ten home runs in three of the past four seasons so he has a little bit of pop.
Defensively, Hundley ranks slightly ahead of Cervelli with 26% of potential base stealers thrown out in his career. This last season, Nick Hundley had six passed balls and six errors as he caught over six hundred innings due to Buster Posey’s injuries.
For a backup catcher, he hit pretty well with 22 RBI’s and a .241 average with runners in scoring position. Hundley may not be one of the top backup options, but if it comes down to him backing up Barnes until Will Smith is ready, the Dodgers will be fine.
