Sandy Leon, of all people, is one of the two catchers for Boston. Maybe Norris goes there?

Could the Nats have sent Norris to Syracuse as backup to Wieters? Lobie is fine once a week, but if Wieters gets hurt or does not have "it" anymore, who becomes the regular?

Norris still had options, so they could have sent him to Syracuse, but then they would have had to pay him the full contract, and they would have had a very unhappy player.  Also, Severino would lose playing time.
