Buster Posey (SF) – Posey is once again the clear cut top catcher from both a raw total and value standpoints. Since 2012, only Jose Abreu and Paul Goldschmidt have a higher wRC+ than Posey’s 178 mark against LHP. Simply based on his own skills he’s an elite option every time he faces a southpaw, but the contextual factors really solidify him in the top spot today. He’ll be hitting in Coors Field against Tyler Matzek, whose .368 wOBA allowed to RHBs over the last few years is the highest of any starting pitcher in action today.
