Talking Chop's take on Salty (October 2006)

Early struggles because of injuries caused many to doubt the top prospect label of Salty. But when he returned to the lineup in the second half fully healthy, he recovered his form enough to finish the year by showing us his power was still there. His numbers in every way were a departure from his 2005 campaign, with the exception of his increased walk rate.

Salty may find himself back at double-A to start the season. He needs to prove himself there before he can earn a promotion to triple-A or the Majors. Look for him to once again put on a show in spring training, but know that the Braves will take their time with Saltalamacchia. A switch-hitting catcher is a very valuable commodity, and they don't want to mess him up.
