Checking out the Competition: NL West Catchers
Now that the start of the season is within view I thought it would be nice to take a little bit of time and take a look at how the teams in the NL West compare to each other.
First up on the journey is taking a look at the catchers and the projections for each using the ZIPS projections from Baseball Think Factory and projected starters from MLB Depth Charts.
The depth at the catcher position is pretty deep in the NL West. Buster Posey is the best of the bunch but the other four guys are all not too far from being league average hitters with the Dodgers A.J. Ellis projected to be the worst (even though he has the highest projected OBP!).
