Oddly, and this may be a mindfact, but it seems that Pedro has done better in the Bigs than he has in the minors...

At the plate:
Definitely not a mindfact, his MLB OPS is .923, Minors .633.
Lobaton has a Nats career OPS of .581, but that might be about what you can expect out of Severino over time, at least he has potential.

Lobaton is an above average defensive catcher though, and that's probably the most you can reasonably ask out of your backup catcher.

It's awesome if they have one other average skill, Read looks like he has a bit of power, Severino has good speed for a catcher. I think Kieboom is a bit
better a hitter than Loby. I love Kiebooms defense from seeing him in the spring and stuff.

None of them strike out an outrageous amount in the minors, which could be a plus.
