In completely unsurprising news...

...we find that Quintero and Towles may share catching duties to open the season.

Mills:
"Both of them have performed really well, and there's no reason to think they wouldn't be able to handle the situation moving forward on into the start of the season. Corporan has also done a good job back there and has opened some eyes as well, which has been nice."

So it's not 100% settled, but there is a reason to think they wouldn't be able to handle the situation moving forward on into the start of the season. In 2010, Towles hit .308/.372/.513 in 39 Spring Training ABs. And then moving forward on into the season hit .191/.235/.319. I can't seem to find Spring Training stats in previous years, but there are plenty of reasons to think that Towles will struggle. To be clear, I hope he doesn't. But still.

I can't really read much into 47 at bats in 2010 for Towles, or 48 in 2009 for that matter. Both seasons I thought the Rockets cut things short too soon to really tell much about how well he would hit.
