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
PĂ©rez is a great value on draft day for a catcher who plays nearly every day. Expect Mike Matheny to curb his playing time a tad since he missed all of last year.
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
Perez missed the entire season but is still just 30 years old and let's not forget that he was an all-star for six consecutive seasons. There is no more consistent source of power at the position but his BA has dipped into danger territory two times in three seasons. Perez ends the top teir of reliable catchers.
