Peter O'Brien getting work at catcher

While he hasn't played much since being recalled, Diamondbacks catcher Peter O'Brien has been doing catching drills with the Diamondbacks coaching staff and the team remains open to him returning behind the plate, reports Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic.

O'Brien last caught in a game for Triple-A Reno on May 29 before playing the rest of the season in the outfield, but it sounds like the D-Backs are still not prepared to give up on the idea of him as a catcher.

While adding catcher eligibility would, this remains a very tentative proposition based on this report. It will be worth keeping an eye on O'Brien's position if he plays in any off-season or winter leagues, and of course where he lines up in spring training 2016.
