The Best 2022 Fantasy Baseball Catchers
The only good thing that has stemmed from this lockout is the gift of time. Yes, we all want some baseball, but now we get to dive deep into the world of fantasy baseball.
By Zach Smith
A sneaky power threat at the catcher position, Garver could finish in the top five with the amount of damage he does at the plate. In 2021 he hit 13 bombs in 63 games.
8. Keibert Ruiz Washington Nationals
We’ve seen glimpses of stardom from Keibert in the minors and we’re expecting the power to translate in his rookie season. This kid has insane bat-to-ball skills.
7. Tyler Stephenson Cincinnati Reds
Stephenson is only 25 years old, and just completed his first full season. As a former top prospect, he has the pedigree to improve in his sophomore season.
6. Daulton Varsho Arizona Diamondbacks
In the second half of Varsho’s rookie year he hit .290 with 10 homers and 5 stolen bases in 219 plate appearances. By the way, he can also play in the outfield.
5. Willson Contreras Chicago Cubs
Willson Contreras is still doing his thing! Entering his seventh season, he’s one of the most consistent catchers in the game, delivering a career .259 average.
4. Yasmani Grandal Chicago White Sox
It’s simple, the Grandal is a destroyer of baseballs. He hit 23 homers in 93 games last year, and without a torn knee tendon he would have pushed towards 35.
3. J.T. Realmuto – Philadelphia Phillies
Realmuto is one of the safest fantasy catcher options there is. He is one of the most well-rounded catchers in baseball, adding an element of speed few catchers possess.
Perez is easily the number one option in fantasy at the catching position. He finished tied for the lead league in home runs while leading the MLB in RBI’s.
