It may be time to embrace Alfaro as a top-12 fantasy catcher. Despite maintaining his abhorrent contact rates, the 25-year-old continues to maintain a steady average (.273) with plenty of pop (8 HRs) through May. The alternatives are bad enough to hope he keeps overcoming a grotesque strikeout rate by pummeling the balls he hits.

Alfaro has been solid but not great so far in 2019, but he is one of just a handful of catchers who are playing almost every day and is worth rostering in most leagues for his untapped power potential.
