Jarrod Saltalamacchia not the safest bet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Jarrod Saltalamacchia is hot right now. That nobody can deny. But at age 29 and eight years into his big-league, we should have a pretty good idea who he is by now. The amount of attention he's getting in Fantasy suggests we don't.

Granted, the surplus of walks has thrown a wrench into the equation. His lack of plate discipline was the main reason you could count on Saltalamacchia to hit no better than .235 or so in the past. His .273 mark last season depended on an unsustainable .372 BABIP and was widely considered a fluke. The season is still young enough, though, that a few extra walks don't say all that much. With two in his last eight games, Saltalamacchia may have already come back down to earth as far as they go.

So then, who is he? Try a free-swinging, low-batting average type with enough power to hit 20-25 home runs. No doubt, that player has value in Fantasy, but enough that he should be owned in 84 percent of leagues? As deep as catcher has become, with Wilson Ramos fresh off the DL and Miguel Montero and Devin Mesoraco added to the mix this year, he's still outside my top 12.

As an injury fill-in for Mesoraco or Joe Mauer, Saltalamacchia is fine, but he's closer to Russell Martin and Yadier Molina in the long run.


Jarrod Saltalamacchia justifying signing by Marlins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saltalamacchia is on pace to score 94 runs this season. His previous high is 68 in 2013.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
