    Year of the catcher breakout

    Seems like there are quite a few catchers breaking out this year. I can almost hear the crying of the fantasy managers who drafted 2 stud catchers in their 2 catcher leagues and lost their advantage.

    Jorge Alfaro - MIA
    Omar Narvaez - SEA
    Mitch Garver - MIN
    Jason Castro - MIN
    Josh Phegley - OAK
    Christian Vazquez - BOS
    Pedro Severino - BAL
    James McCann - CWS

    Elias Diaz has been pounding the ball and got his first HR last night.


    Cervelli is highly questionable now with his injury history and Diaz may well be the #1 catcher for the Bucs going forward.

    Weird, Severino played in Washington for several years, if you play NL only you should definitely know him well.

    is it true that having a sense of humor skips a generation? I'm starting to believe it.
