2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Converted from a third baseman to a catcher in 2014, Caratini is looking to follow the same career path as organizational mate Willson Contreras, who made the same conversion two years earlier. The switch-hitter has shown impressive plate skills, posting a 129 wRC+ and 80:54 K:BB in 480 plate appearances at Double-A. If he were to continue on this trajectory, Caratini would have a chance to be an above-average offensive contributor at the position. However, he needs to stick behind the plate for the profile to remain appealing in dynasty leagues. Most reports suggest the defense just is not there for him to project as a starting catcher in the big leagues, so for now he is simply a player to follow in case he can make major improvements with his arm and glove.
