With the MLB regular season about two months away from the beginning, it’s time to take a look at rosters. After ranking the American League projected starting catchers, let’s take a look at their counterparts in the National League.

As a subjective list, many of the players can almost be considered interchangeable as to where they are ranked. Projected starting lineups were taken from Fangraphs.

1

J.T. Realmuto, Phillies

Realmuto has won a Silver Slugger each of the last two years and took home his first Gold Glove in 2019. In those two years, he has combined to hit .276 with 46 home runs, 66 doubles, 157 RBIs, and 166 runs.

2

Willson Contreras, Cubs

Contreras was named to his second straight All-Star team last year as he posted career-best numbers of 24 home runs and an .888 OPS. He has a career .821 OPS over four seasons, a number that can be matched or exceeded by very few at his position.
