Mitch Garver (C, MIN) - Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 14%  Leagues

OWNED IN: 9% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Minnesota Twins catcher Mitch Garver has been somewhat of a forgotten man in 2018. He has seen regular starts with Jason Castro going down, but with the Twins struggling, not many are paying attention to his performance. Garver is not setting the world on fire, but he is been a consistent source of offense and could be worth a pickup.

On the season, Garver is hitting .269 with five home runs, 22 RBI and 23 runs scored. His .269 batting average would rank fourth among all catchers had he qualified while his .350 on base percentage would rank fifth. Home runs and RBI may get the headlines, but Garver has been doing his damage with consistent base knocks.

Again, Garver is not going to win you any leagues, but he is going to see regular playing time in 19th best offense when it comes to scoring runs. If you are in a deep 12-man or 14-man league, Garver should be a boost to your catcher position in the batting average category.
