The Top Ten Catchers in 2022
We have accounted for defensive and offensive production since 2019, with an added emphasis on 2021. Here is our list of the ten best projected catchers in 2022:
Contreras hammers baseballs, as he consistently peppers balls north of 110 miles per hour. All-in-all, he logged his third 20-homer season while getting on base at a .340 clip.
When Garver is on the field, he pillages baseballs like few catchers in the sport. Since 2019, Garver has had the same wRC+ as Will Smith and is a tick higher than Salvador Perez at 135.
5. Mitch Garver Texas Rangers
Realmuto is among the elite catchers, especially on defense. What drops him to three is the downturn of offense, as he’s striking out more than he once was.
