Top 10 Catchers From Last Week (6/18-6/24)

An especially thin position, there were quite a few standouts performers. With injuries to big names like Gary Sanchez, you might want to take consider some of the hot bats of the week.

 

1. Yadier Molina – STL  (87%) .333 AVG, 7 R, 5 HR, 7 RBI, 0 SB

The veteran is having a great week, but also a great year (other than a brutal groin injury). He’s hit 11 HR and is batting .270 on the year, meaning he could surpass his career home run mark at age 35.


2.  J.T Realmuto – MIA – 1B (92%) .360 AVG, 5 R, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 0 SB

The Miami backstop was the last big player that was rumored to be on the trade block early in the season. He definitely hasn’t done anything to lessen his appeal early on this season, with 10 home runs and a .308 average. He’s showing himself to be a top-tier catcher.


3. Kevin Plawecki – NYM – (1%) .429 AVG, 3 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 0 SB

While he did collect 7 hits including a home run this week, it is his only home run of the season and he’s still batting .239 on the season. Oh and did we say he’s on the Mets?


4. Tucker Barnhart – CIN –  (24%) .350 AVG, 4 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 0 SB

Barnhart has shown good plate discipline with little pop but a great average. He can give you double digit home runs and a nice average for your catcher position. He’s worth an add in 14 team leagues.


5. Martin Maldonado – LAA (4%) .375 AVG, 2 R, 0 HR, 6 RBI, 0 SB

Never really a power threat, but has been collecting hits a great pace.


6. Kurt Suzuki – ATL (46%) .400 AVG, 3 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 SB

While he does share playing time with Flowers, don’t let that scare you. He’s shown outstanding offensive prowess in his limited appearances. He can give you solid average and power, even with split starts. He needs to be owned in most standard leagues.


7. Devin Mesoraco – NYM (8%) .267 AVG, 3 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 0 SB

In slightly more than 150 at-bats Mesoraco has hit 7 HR and shown he has a fair amount of power in his bat.


8. Buster Posey – SF (98%) .316 AVG, 4 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 0 SB                                

On pace for double-digit home runs with a smattering of 5 plus steals and a great average. Just another year for Buster.


9. Omar Narvaez – CWS (0%) .462 AVG, 3 R, 0 HR, 2 RBI, 0 SB

On pace for double-digit home runs with a smattering of 5 plus steals and a great average. Just another year for Buster.


10. Alex Avila – ARI – 1B (1%) .500 AVG, 1 R, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 0 SB

On pace for double-digit home runs with a smattering of 5 plus steals and a great average. Just another year for Buster.
