2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Who are a couple of catcher sleepers to take late in 5x5 keeper league?
(LittleRon from WV)
Assuming a 15-team, one catcher mixer I like Wilson Ramos (people are suddenly shying away from him) and Robinson Chirinos. In a two catcher format, Geovany Soto and Jarrod Saltalamacchia are backups who could push their way into enough time to be better than the bottom end guys who are playing every day.
