I don't understand why we need to have another backup catcher around. I realize that we can't pinch hit our catchers now, but they're both hitting well, and both good behind the plate. Why not bring up a young arm, or a developing bat. Burke will probably not see much playing time, and is a waste of a roster spot.

Plus there is no reason not to let Wunsch play some games.

Well, from what I understand, Burke can play some 3B, 1B, and LF too. So it gives flexibility. Hopefully he just won't be the next "Mr. Versatile."

Kelly Wunsch can't get anyone out in Charlotte,why would he be brought up?

Interesting....Does he show potential as a flexible utility man?

Ozzie announced that Cotts won't be starting, even after the fifth starter comes into play, so i'm now assuming that Burke has potential to be a replacement for an offender if he succeeds.
Or Dransfeldt will just stay when Jose comes back
