News 
 C Mitch Garver plans on starting 40-45 contests at catcher during the MLB's shortened 60-game season.
Brad Camara
Mon, Jul 6th
Carson Kelly went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double, an RBI, and two runs scored Friday against the Rockies.

Notes 
 There's nothing about Garver's 2019 that is really unsustainable, but it's such a small sample and a late-career breakout that it's hard to buy in fully.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Kelly is a popular sleeper at catcher, but I'd like to see his splits even out a bit before fully buying in.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Garver may be the most difficult catcher to peg this season because his breakout was so extreme and such a surprise. He hit 31 homers in just 311 at-bats. Surely that rate will regress but he should also get more trips to the plate too so 35 HRs, .260 BA is not out of the question by any means.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Kelly was on a roll last season before his injury but still managed to power up for 18 homers in just 314 at-bats. The batting average may end up below .240 but with a full season, 30 homers isn't out of the question for the youngster.
