Kyle Schwarber (CHC) – On sites where Schwarber is eligible, he’s by far the top option at the catcher position. Schwarber has been a good hitter (.370 wOBA), but the power (.282 ISO) is what separates him. That power is fueled by a 42 percent hard hit rate and 47 percent FB rate. The power is certainly not a fluke. At the minor league level, Schwarber never generated an ISO below .240. This doesn’t bode well for opposing pitcher Wily Peralta, who has been tattooed vs. LHBs (.353 wOBA/1.33 HR per 9 surrendered to lefties since 2013). Schwarber’s price point is a bit difficult to swallow for cash games, but if you can find a way to fit him, he’s playable on any format of your choosing.
