Mojica spent 24 games at catcher, committing three errors in 183 chances for a .984 Fld%. Encouragingly, Mojica threw out 16 of 37 baserunners, for a 43% CS rate. Discouragingly, Mojica also allowed 10 passed balls.

He is the only player in the Astros organization whose name sounds like a Rage Against the Machine lyric (Think "People of the Sun"), but this was Mojica's second year in Greeneville, and his OPS dropped from .690 to .685 from 08 to 09, posting a line of .302/.388/.302 in 16 games in 08.

Citizen Steve, what say you on Carlos Mojica?
He was mostly a bullpen catcher prior to Alvarez getting hurt. Roster filler.
