 Catcher TM $$   Notes
Victor Martinez CLE 24   In prime of his career - will maintain his level of production
Joe Mauer MIN 21   Already proven what he's capable of
Jorge Posada NYA 17   Outstanding 2007 campaign but unlikely to repeat
Kenji Johjima SEA 14   Good bet to continue delivering solid triple crown numbers
Jarrod Saltalamacchia TEX 12   One of the game's top young catchers. Could top 20 HR's
Mike Napoli LAA 10   Had .794 OPS in 2007 - potential for a big season
Jason Varitek BOS 8   Has enough left for one more productive season
Ivan Rodriguez DET 7   Remains capable of hitting for a solid average and good RBI numbers
A.J. Pierzynski CHA 5   Mid-to-late draft pick with solid Average, HR and RBI
Ramon Hernandez BAL 4   Could turn in a rebound campaign
John Buck KCA 4   Career on an upswing - will be the starter
Dioner Navarro TB 2   Sleeper candidate - good bang for your buck
Kurt Suzuki OAK 1   Will start - late round selection
Gregg Zaun TOR 1   Some pop but at-bats will be limited
Gerald Laird TEX 1   If Salty fails Laird will get production
Miguel Olivo KCA 1   Backup to Buck
Rod Barajas TOR 1   Will share time with Zaun
Jeff Mathis LAA 1   Not much to write home about
Mike Redmond MIN 1   With Mauer there won't be much playing time for Mike
Kelly Shoppach CLE 1   A few numbers unless Martinez goes on the D.L.
 Catcher TM $$   Notes
Russell Martin LA 24   Five category production - In 2007 led all catchers in Avg, Slg, HR, SB
Brian McCann ATL 18   Combines power with good contact. Expect 20+ HR's & near .300 Avg
Geovany Soto CHN 7   Capable of solid Average and double-digit homers
J.R. Towles HOU 6   Decent average, double-digit homers and even stealing a few bases
Bengie Molina SF 5   19 HR's in 2007 but a sub .300 OBP
Carlos Ruiz PHI 2   A mild sleeper candidate
Chris Iannetta COL 2   Expect him to take over full-time catching duties by the All-Star break
Ronny Paulino PIT 2   Difficult time matching his 2006 average
Josh Bard SD 2   Not much power but could hit .300 plus
Ryan Doumit PIT 2   Backup to Paulino but has good OPS in limited action
David Ross CIN 1   Pass on him unless you're desperate for HR's
Chris Snyder ARI 1   Can go on hot streaks
Miguel Montero ARI 1   Could replace Snyder as the starter
Paul Lo Duca WAS 1   Unlikely to provide more than moderate help
Brian Schneider NYM 1   Not much offense other than solid RBI output
Michael Barrett SD 1   Look elsewhere for a catcher
Johnny Estrada WAS 1   Backup to Lo Duca - lots of playing time in Spring while Lo Duca heals
Yadier Molina STL 1   Good average but low power
Jason Kendall MIL 1   Good average but NO power
Yorvit Torrealba COL 1   Crowded in the Colorado bench
Mike Rabelo FLA 1   Only woth a dollar
Ramon Castro NYM 1   Another dollar guy
Chris Coste COL 1   Crowded in the Colorado bench
Javier Valentin CIN 1   Decent average
