 C Mitch Garver plans on starting 40-45 contests at catcher during the MLB's shortened 60-game season.

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
Smith could be a Top 5 catcher in 2021 if he can tap into the production that he had in the minors. The March reports of him being in a timeshare are slightly concerning.
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
Smith was among the biggest surprises last season, knocking 15 homers and 42 RBIs in just 170 at-bats. That's a full-season pace of 40 homers and a 120 RBIs. Granted, that won't happen, but the upside is clearly there for a special season. You'll have to decide if the hefty ADP is worth the risk.
