Buster Posey (SF) – Like Wednesday, Posey is once again a clear top option at the catcher position. He gets a huge park shift in his favor going from San Francisco (deflates scoring by 24 percent) to Cincinnati (inflates scoring by 21 percent) and he’s facing one of the weakest starters in all of baseball. Jason Marquis has allowed a .342 wOBA and 1.34 HR/9 to RHBs since 2012. ZiPS projection system is calling for a 5.20 ERA over the rest of the season while allowing 1.79 HR/9. Marquis’ below average skills coupled with one of the best offensive environments in baseball, makes him one of the top pitchers to target. Posey’s price is up a bit around the industry after his monster performance on Wednesday, but the gap between Posey and the next best catching options is wide. He ranks inside our Top Five hitters overall and the next best catching options generally rank outside our Top 50 and few rank inside the Top 100.
