Corrente Gets Well-Deserved Promotion

Corrente Gets Well-Deserved Promotion

The Toronto Blue Jays promoted catcher David Corrente from Dunedin to Double-A New Hampshire on Friday afternoon, after catcher John Schneider was placed on the disabled list with an unspecified injury.

The 22-year-old Corrente played in 33 games with Dunedin and was batting .321 with seven home runs and thirty runs batted in. Corrente was delegated as the backup catcher for Dunedin, which is why he has appeared in limited games. However, his bat was a valuable one for the Blue Jays, and he stepped up big whenever he was called upon. Corrente was batting .421 with runners in scoring position and two outs, and .429 when leading off an inning.

Drafted in the 14th round of the 2001 draft, Corrente had a career .219 batting average entering the season.

Corrente's role with New Hampshire is expected to remain the same as it was with Dunedin. Recommended Stories
