Underrated because of Def -- John Jaso - C - TB. Guy can flat out hit, but they say he struggles defensively, although he throws out in the mid 40% of runners. He is a top catcher spec for fantasy

I can echo Gerardo Parra probably being overrated because of defense. He is a defensive monster, just an absolute cannon of an arm.

Dont get me wrong, he hits well, but probably not well enough to be the top 50 prospect that some rankings have him in, if you discard defensive ability.
