Catching to be a better P makes no sense. My son caught and P until age 13 when we saw that catching was a contact position at times so we had him stop because his P abilities were better and didn't want to worry about injuries, which he had a few minor ones.
son also moved from SS/3B to outfield when not P which he loved. He got in the long toss he needed.
With 5 catchers in program how much playing time would son get? The fact that he can play Inf positions will get him more time.
