Notes 
 Mejia was a bit of a fantasy disappointment last year but that is often the case with young catchers. He should end up with much more than 226 at-bats this time around and if he does, you can expect 15+ homers to go with a useful batting average.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Suzuki's bat took off last year with 17 homers, 63 RBIs and a .264 BA in just 280 at-bats. It seems likely that Gomes will take more of a back seat this year which would make Suzuki a plenty useful offensive catcher for fantasy owners.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Former top prospect hit .333/.376/.593 over final 93 PAs of 2019
