News 
  Yadier Molina told ESPN's Marly Rivera that he would be willing to test the free agent market this off-season if an extension with the Cardinals doesn't work out.

Notes 
 You can't really buy what he did last year, but he volumed himself into being a startable catcher.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Yadi isn't likely to knock 20 homers again at this point in his career, but he is a safe source of batting average and also provides a handful of steals every year as well. While he is healthy, batting in the middle of the lineup should provide plenty of RBIs and runs for fantasy owners too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Vasquez is being drafted as the ninth catcher off the board this season but finished 2019 as the #4 catcher in fantasy with 23 homers and a solid .276 average. Playing in Boston's treacherous lineup certainly dosn't hurt either. His upside isn't as sexy but this is a good bat well worth using as a top 12 catcher.
