Fantasy Baseball – BREAKOUT Catchers

Mar 8, 2008

Here are some catchers that should break out this year.

Geovany Soto
Soto hit .389 in 18 games last year for Chicago.  He added 12 runs, 6 doubles, 3 HRs, and 8 RBI.  The starting job is his to lose.  I don’t forsee him doing so.

Kurt Suzuki
He’s got the starting gig in Oakland so that’s a start.  His batting average could use improvement (.249), but he did score 27 runs, have 13 doubles, 7 HRs, and 39 RBI in 68 games, which is pretty impressive.  He’s going to be a great value in the late rounds. 

J.R. Towles
J.R. hit .375 in 14 games with Houston last year.  He scored nine runs to go along with his 5 doubles and 12 RBI. While your opponents are picking up guys that will be lucky to bat .240, you could be leaving them scratching their heads asking who’s J.R. Towles?
