The New York Yankees need a catcher, so do the Texas Rangers, and the Tampa Bay Rays are always looking.
Boston's signing of David Ross theoretically creates a surplus of catching for the Red Sox, and theoretically, general manager Ben Cherington could weigh offers for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who is climbing the salary arbitration scale.
