Albernaz looks to start 2009 where he left off last season, with the Montgomery Biscuits in AA. He's heading into his age 26 season with a career minor league batting line of .194/.273/.251. He is reported to be a good defensive catcher, and has thrown out 56% (15/27 in '08) and 49% (17/35 in '07) of basestealers the past two seasons. But it's hard to see him ever reaching the majors due to his weak bat. BaseballProspectus projects him to be out of the game after 2010. I know we have some fellow Tritons/Albernaz fans that read here, anything you can add?
