News 
 Chicago White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal went 2-for-3 with a homer and two runs in a 3-3 Cactus League tie with the Reds.

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.
Brad Camara
Wed, Mar 11th
 White Sox manager Rick Renteria says Yasmani Grandal (calf) could catch a few innings on Friday against the Cubs.
Brendan Tuma - Too Much Tuma
Wed, Mar 4th
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.
Jamie Mellor
Sun, Mar 8th
 Chicago White Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal (calf) is expected to catch three innings in Wednesday's B game.

 Yasmani Grandal has a minor calf injury but the team has no doubts that he will be ready for Opening Day.

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
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
 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
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.
