C Johnny Monell

Not exactly a household name, but Monell was acquired from the San Francisco Giants because he has put up some solid power numbers in the minor leagues. Steve Clevenger will arrive at spring training on top in the battle to open the season as Matt Wieters' backup, but Monell will get a look because he can play multiple positions. He's not the best defensive catcher in the mix, however, so he'll probably start the season at Triple-A Norfolk.
