News 
 J.T. Realmuto told reporters Thursday that extension talks with the Phillies have not progressed since the shutdown.

Wilson Contreras went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 16-3 Cactus League win over the Giants.

 Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Minnesota Twins. The homer was his second of the Spring.

Willson Contreras heard his name mentioned in trade rumors in the offseason but nothing materialized so he is back as the starting catcher for the Cubs. He is a weapon against the running game with his strong, accurate arm along with his ability to catch runners who are not paying attention by snapping a throw off behind them.

 Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto went 3-for-3 with a home run in Wednesday's win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. The homer was his first of the Spring.

Notes 
 Look, we get it. No one really wants to draft a catcher. And for those of you in two-catcher leagues (first off, stop), no one wants to draft two catchers. But if you decide that you want to have an advantage at the position, it makes sense to take J.T. Realmuto here because of the overall production he'll bring and the added volume of games he'll play in his second season in Philadelphia. If there are no other players you like on the board and you feel like you can get adequate value at the other positions later, go ahead and click the draft button.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Contreras had a nice bounce back season last year after a disappointing 2018. He, too, could catch 95 percent of the Cubs games this year, which would make him a lock for a top three catcher.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Realmuto didn't quite live up to the lofty expectations last year but still managed to finish as the top catcher in fantasy baseball. He is a near-lock to again lead the position in steals and runs while providing 20+ homers, 75+ RBI and a solid batting average. His ceiling might not be as high as Gary Sanchez, but you know you are drafting a sure-fire top 100 player with Realmuto.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Contreras is no doubt one of the best hitting catchers in baseball, with a .270+ average in three of four seasons, but his upside is capped by the fact that Chicago also has Caratini and is certain to get him 200+ PAs. Even so, Contreras should have no trouble reaching 20 HRs, 50 R and 60 RBIs once again.
