Fantasy Baseball – BREAKOUT Catchers
Here are some catchers that should break out this year.
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.
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. 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?
