Durham and wasnamed the best defensive catcher in the International League by Baseball
Salas, 29, pitched in 50 games between Double-A Montgomery and
Durhamand did very well, going 4-1 with 17 saves and a 0.71 ERA. He allowed only five earned runs (and 28 hits) in 63 1/3 innings while striking out 85.
