Top 25 catcher rankings for 2012 To quickly summarize them… There’s a new no. 1 in town for 2012 – Indians backstop Carlos Santana (deserved) Since V-Mart is going to be out for the year… he’s not anywhere to be found (makes sense) Joe Mauer took a dive. After 3 seasons at no. 1 – we have him no. 8 heading into 2012. Jesus Montero of the Mariners is the new kid on the block – we have him at no. 9.

Jonathan Bentz of Fantasy Baseball Dugout discusses the Michael Pineda for Jesus Montero trade and its impact on fantasy baseball 2012.   Michael Pineda to the Yankees: Fantasy Analysis In getting traded to the New York Yankees, Miguel Pineda immediately gets thrown into a spotlight/pressure cooker situation. He’s projecting right now as no. 2 in the Yankees rotation behind CC Sabathia — so you know he will be in line for some wins if he can keep it consistent. After his All-Star start to the 2011 season – he struggled with getting wins down the stretch. Obviously, wins aren’t as important in fantasy baseball as they are in real life. This is one of the great inaccuracies of fantasy baseball, but one of the biggest reasons great pitchers on bad teams still have a lot of value (see Hernandez,...

by BallparkBob Finding a sleeper at catcher is probably the toughest position to acquire a hidden gem.  That’s because catchers are more injury prone, take more time off, and, quite frankly, they usually don’t hit all that well in the first place.

2012 Fantasy Baseball Projection: Rod Barajas

Posted by on Nov 12, 2011 in 2012 Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Baseball Catchers | 0 comments

The Pittsburgh Pirates were in tremendous need of a catcher for the 2012 season and they got their man in veteran backstop Rod Barajas. With Ryan Doumit and Chris Snyder both opting for free agency, getting a veteran catcher who could handle the young Pirates pitching staff was critical and in Rod Barajas, the Bucs got somebody who will thrive in that role. Barajas has never been one to hit for much average.  Barajas hit .230 in 2011 with the Dodgers and has a career mark of .238.  But, he does bring some power to the game.  In 2011, Barajas belted 16 home runs in just 336 at bats for Los Angeles; that was the 11th highest total in the MLB among catchers.  In fact, Barajas has had double-digit home run totals in 7 of his last 8 years...

Jay Bruce was the NL Player of the month in May hitting 12 HR with 33 RBI. In the other 3 months combined he has 9 HR 24 RBI.  2. CC Sabathia has been on a roll winning 8 of 9 starts from 6/14-7/26. In his last 7 starts he has allowed only 5 ER. He has done it before. During the 2010 season from 6/3-7/22 he won 9 of 10 starts. The big fella cranks it up a notch once the calendar turns June. 3.
