Hundley is another veteran catcher on the market who’s bat could come up in big spots whenever he gets a chance to play. At 34-years-old he’s not as worn as Ellis but he’s caught in the postseason and for aces over the years such as Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto, Jake Peavy in his prime, and even Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman.
Phillies reliever Tommy Hunter has also had experience with Hundley from their time in Baltimore in 2014.
Playing 30 games this season Hundley has cracked five home runs with a modest .244 batting average, but the 23 strikeouts to four walks likely won’t satisfy the Philadelphia coaching staff or front office.
Keep an eye on Hundley if the Giants continue to slip down the stretch this summer.
