Earlier today, Blaine Blontz of MLB Injury News wrote that the Chicago Cubs will be targeting a catcher this offseason. Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors spoke to a few agents who believe the Cubs were going to spend "good money" on a catcher. We didn't know names at the time, but we now know who they are interested in. Tom Loxas of Chicago Now reports that the Chicago Cubs are interested in Boston Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Saltalamacchia won't come cheap. Late last month, Keith Law said this about what he thinks of Saltalamacchia's free agent market via Brian MacPherson: .@keithlaw: Jarrod Saltalamacchia is "my early pick for the player most likely to get a (free-agent) deal that shocks everybody." — Brian MacPherson (@brianmacp) September 24, 2013 With this year's free agent catchers market being so thin, Saltalamacchia could be in for a big time contract. We don't know exactly what he'll get, but judging by Keith Law's comments, it sure sounds like he could be in for a nice pay raise. On the season, Saltalamacchia hit .273 with 14 home runs and 65 RBI's. Saltalamacchia also had 40 doubles on the season, which easily was his career best, beating out his previous high of 23, which he set back in 2011.
