Brian McCann had a nice game last night going 4-5 with 2 runs, 2 RBIs and depositing two baseballs deep into the right field bleachers.  Unsurprisingly, he looks like he’s on pace for one of the .290- 21 HR - 80 RBI seasons we are accustomed to seeing from him. While this will not make him a top-50 player on Yahoo!’s player rater, he’s still a top-50 player in my book. Why? Because of opportunity cost – who is your alternative at catcher?

The catcher position as historically been the scarcest position in fantasy. This a rare year, one where there was supposed to be five to seven legitimately good catchers.  So why do I put such a high premium on positional scarcity for catchers? Let’s take a look at those good catchers.

Buster Posey is likely out for the season.  Joe Mauer as only 34 at bats because of health issues. Carlos Santana has been a huge bust to this point. Geovany Soto and Mike Napoli, two players a lot of people were expecting to have good years have played horrendously. The only elite catchers living up to their hype are Victor Martinez and Mr. McCann.

There are other catchers that are playing well such as Russell Martin, Alex Avila. Miguel Montero and Jonathan Lucroy. But besides Montero, I don’t expect any of those catchers to keep up their performance.  That means if you don’t have one of the top few catchers, you’d have to employ a Kurt Suzuki or Chris Iannetta.  The drop-off between those catchers and McCann if far greater than the drop off between Hunter Pence and the number 30 outfielder ant that’s why McCann is easily a top-50 player.  

  • Andrew McCutchen went 2-5 with a home run yesterday. He’s had terrific May hitting .293 with 4 homers,  6 stolen bases, 15 runs and 15 RBIs.
  • Josh Hamilton had another two hit game and his shoulder appears to be fully healthy. He is 8-23 with 5 extra base hits in the 5 games since returning from his shoulder injury.
  • Jaime Garcia got pummeled in Coors yesterday. Still doesn’t change my belief that he’s an elite pitcher.
 

One Response to Daily Notes | Is Brian McCann a top-50 player?

  1. Glad to hear someone talking so positive about Brian McCann. I chose to use one of my 3 keeper spots for him coming into 2011 and I have not been disappointed. I like the way you mention that there really is no other alternative at the position. He is pretty much it.

    That alone puts him into the top 50. Well said.
