The Washington Nationals recently acquired Derek Norris in exchange for a low level pitching prospect. His acquisition only adds to the questions surrounding the Nationals catching.

Norris adds another layer to the difficult task of replacing Wilson Ramos behind the plate and the Nats do have a few other options.
