Catcher eligibility thread

Postby Fantasy Guru » Sun Jan 22, 2006 1:54 am

This thread is dedicated to useful players who may gain catcher eligibility at some point. Like Inge last year.

Two players I'm crossing my fingers for are Shelton or Craig Wilson. If either of them do, and no one else in the league realizes it, I may have a pretty damn good catcher in the later rounds. I don't have to worry about a "catcher run" :-D

Any others?

Will Josh Willingham be catcher eligible? Did he ever catch for the Marlins last year?

He will be. Eligibility is given for 5 games started or 10 games played, or being penciled in as the starter for that position like reyes was last year

Check here http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/

Yahoo is pretty current in regards to trades and players' new teams. Jacobs is currently listed as "C" only.
You'll find some errors tho. Nomar is listed as 1B/SS.
But on the other side...Inge lost his "c", MMora lost his OF status. Guess they are still updating.

Good call on the Yahoo! list, riverrat. That is, of course, assuming
leagues are using the same eligibility rules as Yahoo!.

If you go by that Yahoo! list of catchers, it shows Fick and Willingham
being the current multi-position catchers who will likely see
playing time this year. Fick's OPS had been declining till last
year... but he doesn't have much upside.

As for Craig Wilson... he's an enigma to me this year. The Pirates
signed him for another year, but he doesn't even show up on
some of the depth charts I'm looking at. Is he trade bait? What
the heck is gonna' happen to him? I had him on my draft list as
a late-rounder last year... then he had horrible luck with injury. Oi.

Jacobs did not catch last year, so I think he'll lose eligibility.

Jason Phillips has C eligibility and is moving from LA to Tor. He looked good with the Mets, but has been pretty bad the last 2 years,

I doubt Jacobs will gain C eligibility this year. He's not MLB-caliber defensively at the position so unless there are some injuries it doesn't seem likely.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
