2015 Position Rankings: C (Updated!!!)

CThere’s not a whole lot to like about the crop of catchers in this year’s draft class. Aside from Chris Betts and late-bloomer Tyler Stephenson, there isn’t much offensively to get excited about. If you’re a fan of a strong defensive catcher, though, this is the year for you. Between Garrett Wolforth, Wyatt Cross and Elih Marrero, there should be at least one Gold Glove in their collective future.

Of course, though, like most positions, catcher is a two-way street. If a player plays outstanding defense, but doesn’t offer anything at the plate, then there’s little chance of advancing all the way to the Majors.

These rankings are current as of 6/4/15, and will be updated throughout the draft season.
