C,1B - PHI
Expert NoteView More Notes
Some fantasy managers refuse to "pay" for catchers in a similar way to how some refuse to "pay" for saves, but J.T. Realmuto is the one catcher worth the price on draft day. The 31-year-old smacked 22 home runs and stole 21 bases while slashing .276/.342/.478 for the National League Champions. His oWAR of 5.4 was eighth in the NL overall and first for catchers by a wide range, and he is in the 86th percentile in sprint speed among ALL players. The best part is that none of these numbers are outliers with expected regression. He has never played fewer than 125 games in a full season, including the six years before the arrival of the NL DH, where he got some extra at-bats on days off. He should give fantasy teams consistent production from a position where that is almost impossible to find.

Realmuto not in starting lineup Tuesday
Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto is not in Tuesday's starting lineup versus the Houston Astros.
Realmuto's absence comes as little surprise after the Phillies clinched a postseason berth with last night's 3-0 win over Houston. Former Astro Garrett Stubbs will replace Realmuto behind the plate and hit ninth in the Phillies' lineup.
