Be nice to get Camden Sewell back for another year after all this..

When Cam or Kirby come out of that bullpen door, I always feel good.

My impression was one. But, I don't understand the covid rule.

He played full year in 2019 for Notre Dame. Then, maybe only 13 games in 2020 due to start of covid. Then 2021 and 2022 with 'Let's Go Pee!'.
I would think that means he has one more "Covid" year remaining but could redshirt if he gets hurt and then use a covid year again. So, one maybe two years left. Strictly my interpretation.

He helps fill the hole, with perhaps some Jarad Dickey, and an improved hitting Charlie Taylor. Plus, there is one additional catcher on the roster who may have redshirted this year.

The case of Paul Skenes is a challenge. He could perhaps be the weekend catcher. However, I do understand that he wants to pitch. Unfortunately, CTV certainly can't guarantee a weekend starting spot. We have three better, and perhaps four if Seth can improve control.

Skenes could pitch some relief, perhaps be a closer, start some weekday games, would be in mix if an injury occurs, or someone needs a weekend off. We do have considerable innings to be filled with Ben, Mark, Red, Cam, etc departing.

But, Paul does have good bat flip so perhaps he wants to play for the best team in the country.

One part about it....the MLB scouts will find him. Even if he is getting them out in mid-innings, they will see his stuff. As a Vol, he is sure to get considerable PR. Plus, Frank Anderson will improve his pitching skill set.
