Texas catching

Postby ABA316 » Fri Mar 27, 2009 9:39 am

Drafted Teagarden late in last night's draft as a backup to Jesus Flores. The owner who drafted Saltalamacchia asked for him already.

Who will be the clear cut starting backstop in Texas or will it be more 50-50?

Taylor Teagarden went 3-for-3 with a triple and a double against the Brewers on Friday.

Teagarden was officially told today that he'd be backing up Jarrod Saltalamacchia. He figures to get most of his starts against lefties initially, and he'll probably hit them well enough to make a modest contribution in AL-only leagues.


basically a split based on matchups but Salty is the starter.

They will definitely split time, it all depends on who starts off hot and stays consistent.
Here's some projections I found: http://www.thomasgeorge.com/baseball/projections.cfm

bingo... salty will be the starter and get the better end of the split. i could see it being 60/40 unless he slumps

ABA In the league I had him in (which as you know has the 1 rookie every day requirement) I cut him for Chris Snyder. Couldnt justify him starting anymroe unless he really takes hold of the job and its a small bench. Would rather start Snyder and fill in someone else as the rookie. A little surprised Snyder wasnt drafted with his potential.

From CBS SPORTSLINE:

Teagarden sends one over the fence Updated 3/30/09
Teagarden, Taylor C TEX
News: Rangers C Taylor Teagarden, who will most likely play a reserve role to Jarrod Saltalamacchia this season, hit his third home run of the spring -- a three-run shot -- Sunday against the Angels. The home run came in his only at-bat. He's now batting .286 (10-for-35).
Analysis: Teagarden is a decent power-hitting catcher prospect in his own right, but the Rangers have so many of them that he'll have to bide his time on the bench. He'll probably steal some at-bats at DH, but his sporadic production makes him just an AL-only option in Fantasy.

I am sorry but these are the worst projections ever! How do you justify just about every hitter having an OPS higher than .800...Atkins' OPS at .924? and Pujols 1.200+? No way!
