I guess we gotta rank the catchers, right? It’s not really a fun prospect and I’m unlikely to spend on top-200 pick on a backstop. J.T. Realmuto remains in a tier of his own — so long as the pre-season hand injury does not hamper him.
You probably want to walk away with a top-12 catcher on this list in a single catcher league, so if it’s a 12-teamer, take whoever falls. In a deeper league, it’s fine to get ahead of the run, but don’t go nuts.
If I’m grabbing a backstop in the top-200 picks, it’s probably Travis d’Arnaud whose currently sitting in the 135 range on average. Mitch Garver (213) and Wilson Ramos (271) look like solid gambles in the end-game.
