Fantasy Baseball Bounceback Players – Catchers

Feb 26, 2008

I’ll wrap this series up with the catchers who could bounce back from slow 2007 seasons.

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.

    Twins need Mauer to return to form.
