Catcher Rankings

Here is a tentative look at my catcher rankings and dollar values for a two-catcher 12-team mixed league.  These will definitely be tweaked plenty before draft day.

I used 20 games for eligibility, so Pablo Sandoval (11 games caught) did not make the cut.  If he had, he'd be just below the range of Ryan Doumit and Geovany Soto.  Sandoval's eligibility is a huge factor in two-catcher mixed leagues, especially if the Giants do not acquire a third baseman.  Taylor Teagarden (12 games caught) would also be draftable if eligible.

Here's the list, with draft round in parentheses.

  1. Brian McCann - $19.72 (4)
  2. Joe Mauer - $19.21 (5)
  3. Russell Martin - $18.89 (4)
  4. Mike Napoli - $17.83 (13)
  5. Victor Martinez - $16.61 (7)
  6. Geovany Soto - $15.36 (6)
  7. Ryan Doumit - $15.30 (11)
  8. Matt Wieters - $13.14 (11)
  9. Chris Iannetta - $10.67 (12)
  10. Bengie Molina - $10.53 (14)
  11. Jorge Posada - $9.10 (18)
  12. Ramon Hernandez - $7.42 (22)
  13. A.J. Pierzynski - $6.82 (21)
  14. Brandon Inge - $5.43 (24)
  15. Chris Snyder - $5.06 (27)
  16. Kelly Shoppach - $4.42 (23)
  17. Miguel Olivo - $3.70 (28)
  18. Gerald Laird - $3.28 (23)
  19. Dioner Navarro - $3.11 (21)
  20. Kurt Suzuki - $2.71 (21)
  21. J.R. Towles - $2.13 (28)
  22. Yadier Molina - $1.80 (26)
  23. Rod Barajas - $1.68 (28)
  24. Jesus Flores - $1.00 (28)

The problem with dollar values is that they hinge on playing time.  Among these 24, there is extra uncertainty with Napoli, Wieters, Shoppach, Olivo, and Towles.  Catchers such as Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Jason Varitek, Carlos Ruiz, John Baker, Jeff Clement, Ivan Rodriguez, Miguel Montero, and Kenji Johjima would be in the mix with 400+ ABs.

I like to try to get two of the top seven, but occasionally I'll stretch to the Posada level for my second guy.
