Fantasy Baseball Bounceback Players – Catchers
Víctor Martínez - Víctor’s were way down even if you factored in him playing in just 73 games. He had just 30 Runs, 2 HRs, and 35 RBI. Let’s say you doubled that production to get 60 R, 4 HRs, and 70 RBI. That’s a far cry from the 77.5 R, 21 HR, and 98.8 RBI he averaged in his four previous seasons. I expect at least 70 Runs, 15 HRs, and 80 RBI from him in 2009.
Jorge Posada - Jorge managed to play just 51 games after hitting a career high .338 in 2008. His shoulder is feeling better and you can pencil him in for his usual 65+ Runs, 25+ Doubles, 20+ HRs, and 80+ RBI.
Jason Varitek - He’s not much of an offensive force, but he’s better than the .220, 37 R, 93 H, 43 RBI he produced last year. He should bat 30 points higher with 20 more Runs, 10 more Hits, and 12 more RBI.
