Notes 
 With just 60 games being played this year, you want a lot of volume. Besides J.T. Realmuto, there's no catcher who will give you the volume that Grandal will this year.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Looking just at the on-the-field perspective, SanĂ³ could lead the league in homers and no one would blink an eye. Moving to first base helps him in the short and long term, too.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 In terms of overall game, Grandal may be the best catcher in all of baseball, as his OBP will hover just south of .400 and he plays excellent defense but the BA will be closer to that .240 mark and his HRs, RBIs and runs should dip in the ballpark and lineup moves from MIL to CWS.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
Sano missed over 50 games but still hit 34 homers and drove in 79 runs. With a full season, 50/110/110 is a real possibility but let's not pretend that he hasn't let fantasy owners down a number of times so there is most definitely some risk as well.
