Catcher Friendly

Posted: June 6, 2011 in General

Most seasons fantasy baseball provides 5 must start catchers at best.  To begin this season two of those catchers were Buster Posey and Joe Mauer.  Well Buster is done and Mauer can’t even catch yet, though he could be called up as a DH as early as June 12th.  One catcher on a hot streak is Miguel Olvio who has turned Safeco field into his own hitter friendly ballpark as of late hitting 3 homeruns in his past 7 at-bats.  Olivio is only owned in 20% of leagues posting a yahoo ranking of 25 over the past 2 weeks.  His overall ranking for the season is 6th out of all catchers and the players above him are only posting better OBP’s and a few more doubles.  Right handed hitters playing in Seattle don’t usually fare well so it is yet to be seen if he can continue at a solid pace.  In the world of streaming catchers he is definitely worth a shot
