TEN MINUTES OR LESS: Q&A with San Jose catcher Jeff Arnold

Drafted out of Louisville in the 26th round in 2010, 25-year old catcher Jeff Arnold has quite a task in San Jose this year. He catches easily some of the San Francisco Giants’ best starting pitching prospects, including. Kyle Crick, Clayton Blackburn, Ty Blach and Edwin Escobar.

I sat down with Arnold last week to discuss the impressive pitching talent, his role as a catcher and his improved offensive play in this week’s edition of “Ten Minutes or Less.”
