With players like Lucroy, Avila, Ramos, Hernandez, Soto, and Iannetta on the DL, fantasy baseball owners may be struggling to find a decent replacement for the catcher position. You may even have a guy like Kurt Suzuki who’s just been plain disappointing.
I offer Wilin Rosario as a remedy for your troubles. Rosario hasn’t seen a lot of at-bats this season but has proven he belongs in the big leagues since fellow catcher Ramon Hernandez went down with an injury. Nine of Rosario’s 28 hits this season are home runs. He has added eight doubles and 25 RBI in his 116 at-bats in 2012.
Rosario is available in 85 percent of ESPN fantasy baseball leagues and 79 percent of Yahoo! fantasy baseball leagues.
