Catchers on the Bubble

April 7, 2012

I always like to carry 2 catchers on my fantasy baseball team. Why? We have a 162 game limit and most catchers are only going to play 120 to 140 games. I therefore like to rotate in my second catcher to max out games played. Those extra runs, RBI’s and home runs are usually good for a position higher in the standings. That could be a title on the line. So which catchers are on the bubble right now – drafted in some leagues not others. It looks like Russell Martin (61% drafted), Wilson Ramos (57% drafted) and Kurt Suzuki (28% drafted) are your best candidates for that 2nd catcher position. Just to be different I have John Buck right now. He is currently playing a series at hitter friendly Cincinati Reds.
