As usual, most of the catchers were not very good this season, but Carlos Santana stayed healthy and proved to be the best at his position, finally!  Jason Castro came out of nowhere and hit 18 home runs and 35 doubles in just 120 games for the Houston Astros.  Miguel Montero really had a down year and hurt me as I was very high on him and ranked him 3rd in Spring Training rankings.  He finished 20th overall. table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } NameTeamG AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB AVG OBP Fantasy PointsRankSpring TrainingCarlos SantanaCLE1545417514539120749311030.2680.37760014Victor MartinezDET159605681823601483546200.3010.35558826Yadier MolinaSTL136505681614401280305530.3190.35954635Jonathan LucroyMIL147521591462561882466990.2800.340538417Buster PoseySF148520611533411572607020.2940.37153251Matt WietersBAL1485235912329022794310420.2350.28749568Jarrod SaltalamacchiaBOS1214256811640014654313940.2730.338483721Wilin RosarioCOL1214496313122121791510940.2920.31547989Joe MauerMIN113445621443501147618900.3240.40446992Jason CastroHOU1204356312035118565013020.2760.3504651032 table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } NameTeamG AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB AVG OBP Fantasy PointsRankSpring TrainingSalvador PerezKC138496481452531379216300.2920.3234641115A.J.
