Catcher Rankings

It's time to bust out our tentative catcher rankings for two-catcher, 12-team mixed leagues using AVG, HR, RBI, R, and SB.  These are subject to change, and I'm open to arguments in the comments.  Current average draft round is in parentheses.

  1. Joe Mauer (2) - $30.33
  2. Brian McCann (4) - $23.19
  3. Victor Martinez (3) - $20.43
  4. Matt Wieters (9) - $17.41
  5. Russell Martin (12) - $16.85
  6. Mike Napoli (15) - $15.67
  7. Geovany Soto (13) - $13.65
  8. Kurt Suzuki (12) - $12.72
  9. Ryan Doumit (18) - $10.80
  10. Jorge Posada (10) - $10.30
  11. Bengie Molina (14) - $9.91
  12. Miguel Montero (13) - $9.55
  13. A.J. Pierzynski (22) - $8.26
  14. Chris Iannetta (16) - $8.16
  15. Yadier Molina (20) - $7.75
  16. Kelly Shoppach (27) - $5.52
  17. Ramon Hernandez (26) - $5.44
  18. Carlos Ruiz (23) - $5.02
  19. John Buck (28) - $3.88
  20. John Baker (27) - $3.53
  21. Jarrod Saltalamacchia (27) - $3.38
  22. Gerald Laird (27) - $1.52
  23. Nick Hundley (28) - $1.20
  24. Gregg Zaun (not drafted) - $1.00

The problem with projecting a lot of these guys is figuring out playing time.  How many ABs will Napoli, Doumit, Posada, Montero, Iannetta, Shoppach, Hernandez, and Baker get?  Right now we can only guess; the projections will be refined if managers are revealing during Spring Training.

We're calling for a bit of a bounceback for Martin, and he is the one real SB threat, but I'm still wary.  If you decide to take a pass on the Big Three, I'd attempt to get Wieters and/or Soto in rounds 9-13.  Those two could enter McCann/V-Mart territory depending on their spots in the batting order.
