1. J.T. Realmuto- Philadelphia Phillies

More from Call to the Pen

2019 stats- 145 games .275/.328/.493 25 homers 83 RBI

2020 steamer: 127 games .269/.329/.477 23 homers 75 RBI

Now we’ve come to the number one catcher. The guy who’s number one at the position on my board and should be on yours as well for 2020 fantasy baseball. Realmuto may be the best overall catcher in the game today and put up those numbers with a meniscus tear in his knee that he got surgery on in late September.

Realmuto was fourth in homers, first in runs and RBI, seventh in average and slugging percentage, and ninth in wOBA among catchers with at least 100 plate appearances.

Realmuto should have more of an opportunity to put up even better numbers this season, with a healthy Andrew McCutchen and Didi Gregorius a part of the lineup now. Realmuto can really do it all and won’t kill your batting average either. This is what makes him my number one catcher for 2020 fantasy baseball.
