I/M/O, I prefer Flowers for the money, or maybe Avila.  I am getting back to my

obsession, but I like Avila being a lefty bat to take some PAs against righties away from Gomes.  Avila's defense is not below average. Gomes is very effective hitting lefties.  I don't know if Davey will line up catchers with pitchers, but since both are capable defensively, I could see a more matching up based on the opponents starters rather than being somebody's caddy.  Also, FWIW, it looks like Avila caught Corbin a lot in 2018 when they were with the D-backs, and Corbin is the toughest guy to catcher among the starters.
