-Due to both his sliding power and injury problems this spring, we have placed Buster Posey behind the emerging Wilson Contreras.  Contreras can easily smack 25 homers and post a decent enough average this season which can't be said of Posey.
-The news that Yasmani Grandal would get the lion's share of starts behind the dish for the Los Angeles Dodgers this season put the brakes on any immediate upside for Austin Barnes.  At the very least though,Barnes should be monitored due to his ability to hit.
-Please do yourself a favor and don't sleep on the fact Evan Gattis will be an everyday DH this season.  We love any catcher-eligible player that will be out there on a daily basis and Gattis has immense power.
