C — 1B — 2B — 3B — SS — OF — SP — RP — Top 10
Mike Zunino – Sea – C
The 3rd overall pick in the 2012 MLB draft, the ultra talented Zunino will look to take over as the Mariners full-time catcher in 2014. Offering plenty of offensive ability, there is potential for Zunino to break out with 15 home runs and a batting average in the .290 plus range. It would not be surprising if Zunino finished the 2014 season as a top 10 scoring fantasy baseball catcher.
Devin Mesoraco – Cin – C
A popular sleeper pick entering the 2013 season, Mesoraco flopped on the offensive end while in a time share at catcher with the now departed Ryan Hanigan. With the starting job in his pocket entering the 2014 season, Mesoraco could emerge from his prior experience and crank out 15 home run and some solid RBI numbers in the Cincinnati Reds lineup. As a late round pick or free agent pickup in fantasy baseball leagues, the potential for roster worthy stats is definitely present.
Josh Phegley – CWS – C
Entering his age 26 season, Phegley is more aged than many who enter their second MLB season, but there was no denying he figured things out at the plate in 2013. Knocking out 15 home runs with a .316 batting average over 231 at bats at Triple A in 2013, could translate into solid stats for Phegley as the White Sox catcher in 2014.
