Fantasy Baseball Bounceback Players – Catchers
John Buck (.222, 41runs, 18 HR, 48 RBI)
His power numbers improved last year, but I expect him to bat at least 20 points higher. Kansas City may have a decent, young offense so I wouldn’t be surprised with run and RBI increases.
Joe Mauer (.293, 62 runs, 7 HR, 60 RBI)
It’s not that Joe had a BAD year last year, it was just a far cry from his 2006 production (.347, 86 runs, 13 HR, 84 RBI). I don’t expect a huge jump his HRs, but he should see across-the-board improvement.
A.J. Pierzynski (.263, 54 runs, 14 HR, 50 RBI)
I expect his runs, RBI, and his batting average to improve next year. I’m thinking .280, 60 runs, 60 RBI.
