Sounds like same thing he had last winter, but other leg.

Maybe he’ll be twice as good next year?

Still think they should add a vet catcher. Just wait til end of January and nab whoever is best value deal. Bemboom is perfect for 3rd string catcher. DFA Briceno to open a 40-man spot.

Hip surgery out 4 to 6 months. Another blow to halos now we need a catcher.

We always needed a catcher going into this off season.  If he isn’t ready to start the season we now need two catchers.

Well, 4-6 months means February - April. Assuming the latter, he probably won't miss more than a month of the year. The Angels were probably considering getting an Avila/Castro type anyway, now it just seems more likely. New catcher with Briceno backing up and Ward for emergencies to start the year, then Stassi/new catcher with Briceno in AAA. Seems simple enough.

There, a pre-emptive strike.

Bemboom instead of Briceno and you’re likely correct.

Can’t forget Benboom, who was a solid #2 catcher in 2020.

Yeah, that is who I meant to say. I remember when Briceno made an appearance this year I was surprised, because I didn't realize he was still with the organization. But Bemboom has passed him on the depth chart.
