Tom Murphy (C, SEA) - Week 22 Waiver Wire Pickups

Tucker Barnhart (C/1B, CIN) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 11% of leagues ANALYSIS: Tucker Barnhart may have once been able to steal more bases than the average backstop, and he may have hit for a career-high home run total just last year (ten), but the former Gold Glove award winner's forte will always be elite defense behind the...

Pedro Severino (C, BAL) - Week 20 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: The Orioles struck gold when they snatched veteran catcher Pedro Severino from the Nationals before the season began. He's been splitting duties behind the dish, but so far on the season he owns a very solid .272/.347/.452 slash line with 10 home runs,... Read More

Danny Jansen (C, TOR) - Week 19 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of leagues ANALYSIS: Danny Jansen has long been a prized possession within the Toronto Blue Jays farm system, and though he would appear to be disappointing on the surface for 2019 with a .634 OPS in 270 AB, his nine home runs on the year paired with...

Tom Murphy (C, COL) - Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 1% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  Murphy has been getting some playing time of late against lefties, and he’s simply massacring the baseball. Over his last eight games, Murphy has 10 hits, three doubles and two home runs. He’s ripping the cover off the ball with a 47%... Read More

Jorge Alfaro (C, MIA) - Week 18 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 27% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS:  Jorge Alfaro is a great backup catcher. He's hitting the ball well with six hits in his last seven games, including three XBH. He’s an everyday catcher that has found a niche to carve out. Against lefties, he’s sported a .355... Read More

Chance Sisco (C, BAL) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 12% of leagues ANALYSIS: We're not referencing the "Thong Song", we're talking about Sisco of the Chance variety, and he is a former highly-touted prospect having an excellent season in the majors for the bottom-dwelling Baltimore Orioles. The 24-year-old backstop has torn up the opposition this season at Triple-A... Read More

Roberto Perez (C, CLE) - Week 17 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of Yahoo! leagues ANALYSIS: By virtually every measurable metric, fantasy or not, Indians catcher Roberto Perez has been a top-10 catcher in the MLB this season. He is currently boasting a .246/.333/.491 slash line with 16 home runs, 38 RBI and a wonderful 11.2% walk rate.... Read More

Carson Kelly (C, ARI) - Week 16 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 7% of leagues ANALYSIS: I'm not just gassing Carson Kelly up because today is his 25th birthday: he has performed so well at the plate lately for the Arizona Diamondbacks that many of the scouts that once named him a top-50 prospect in all of baseball are starting to...

Roberto Perez (C, CLE) - Week 15 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 18% of leagues ANALYSIS: Maybe it speaks to the unexpected depth present in the middle-tiers of the catcher position this season, but 30-year old Roberto Perez is having a breakout season in his sixth year with the Cleveland Indians, and is white-hot coming off of an absolutely destructive month...

Pedro Severino (C, BAL) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 5% of leagues ANALYSIS: It has hardly been the ideal season for the 2019 Baltimore Orioles, but there has hardly been a bad stretch of work at the plate for Pedro Severino. The 25-year old backstop has mostly been heralded for his phenomenal work on defense, but his bat... Read More

Francisco Mejia (C, SD) - Week 14 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 24% of leagues ANALYSIS: Highly-touted catching prospect Francisco Mejia has not had a great initial time at the highest level of baseball, and he actually got off to an awful start to 2019 through the 54 AB of April and May. He has only taken 23 AB to... Read More

Tom Murphy (C, SEA) - Week 13 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 3% of leagues ANALYSIS: Go figure that as soon as Tom Murphy leaves the club with the most offense-friendly home stadium in baseball, he starts absolutely thriving at the plate. Though it has had to come as a backup to Omar Varvaez, Murphy is on pace to bulldoze his... Read More

Christian Vazquez (C, BOS) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of leagues ANALYSIS: It hasn't been a strong start to June for Christian Vazquez with a .604 OPS and zero home runs through 35 AB, but let's view it as a good time to buy low, because he's at a shallow position for a top-tier offense. After... Read More

Elias Diaz (C, PIT) - Week 12 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 9% of leagues ANALYSIS: The injury to Francisco Cervelli led the way to Elias Diaz receiving the majority share of work at catcher for the Pirates, and the sub-par play of Jacob Stallings has eliminated all current threat. Diaz's body of work on the year sends mixed signals: he... Read More

Jorge Alfaro (C, MIA) - Week 10 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 28% of leagues ANALYSIS: Last year, the Phillies cashed in on a great season by backstop Jorge Alfaro with a line of ten home runs, three stolen bases (in three tries), and a slash of .262/.324/.407. Fast-forward a year, Alfaro was shipped to Miami for fellow unique catcher... Read More

Josh Phegley (C, OAK) - Week 9 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 34% of leagues ANALYSIS: Josh Phegley has struggled to throw together a complete season of adequate work on offense in the MLB, even going so far as to earn the nearly cruel nickname "PTBNL". However, this season, Phegley has been strumming a different tune on offense with the... Read More

Jason Castro (C, MIN) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 10% of leagues ANALYSIS: The Minnesota Twins have hit the proverbial jackpot at backstop in 2019. Manifested first through the emergence of Mitch Garver and, once Garver recently made a trip to the IL, through veteran catcher Jason Castro. The 31-year old former All-Star and Stanford Cardinal is on... Read More

James McCann (C, CHW) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues OWNED IN: 32% of leagues ANALYSIS: After a 2017 season that seemed to pack plenty of promise for the future, James McCann took a massive step back last year in his fifth season as a Detroit Tiger. Maybe he just needed a change in scenery though, as he has already... Read More

Mitch Garver (C, MIN) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 33% of leagues ANALYSIS: Coming into the 2019 season, many expected veteran backstop Jason Castro to take a majority share of the starts and AB for the Twins at catcher, but so far it has been 28-year old New Mexico alumni Mitch Garver who has seized the helm. In... Read More

Isiah Kiner-Falefa (C/2B/3B, TEX) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two-Catcher Leagues OWNED IN: 16% of leagues ANALYSIS: Even though Isiah Kiner-Falefa has slowed down a bit over the last week, he has still produced well over his last 55 AB with two HR and a .345/.379/.527 slash line. His power has been a bit depleted this month, as his 29% hard contact... Read More

Dioner Navarro (TOR, C) - Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Monitor in deeper leagues, add in two-catcher leagues OWNED IN: 4% of Yahoo Leagues ANALYSIS: The sporadic playing time makes him an add in only the deepest of leagues, but in that Jays lineup, he has more value than most backup catchers.

BALLER MOVE: Draft Target Late Rounds in 14+ Team Leagues ANALYSIS: As you probably know if you listen to our RotoBaller Fantasy Sports Radio show (every wednesday night at 9:30 ET), I am not a big fan of overpaying for pitchers and catchers.
