Buster Posey (SF) – Posey is getting a gigantic park shift and facing one of the weakest starters on the slate. Nick Martinez has allowed a .361 wOBA and 1.24 HR/9 to RHBs since 2013 while Posey has compiled a .366 wOBA and .161 ISO during that span against RHP. Posey has posted that impressive performance despite playing in one of the premier pitcher’s parks in all of baseball which is why his skill set profiles so favorably when you move him into strong hitting environments. He ranks inside our Top 10 overall hitters and is CLEARLY the top catcher option. The challenge to investing in Posey is price tag. If you’re paying up for top starting pitching, it will be very difficult to fit Posey in as well. As a result, he makes more sense in tournaments paired with a riskier pitching selection that allows you to load up on premium bats.
