Small sample size alert, but his xBABIP is 2nd worst through 123 PA, due mainly to a high infield popup rate. We'll see how that changes over a full season:

At least, not enough to dropping the likes of Weiters or Doumit.


So then more dropable catchers would then be along the lines of Pierzynski, Soto, Ruiz, Pudge, Bengie, Ramon Hernandez and/or Kendall?

I think I'd hang onto Soto if I needed some pop out of my C spot, but I also think that Soto's always close to regaining his old form.
Otherwise, I like Jaso more than the others in your list there.

Oh, and if you're in an OBP league, this guy's gotta be a no-brainer.

So with Navarro, Shoppach, & Jaso for their C/DH slots, they have passed on Jaso two days in a row. :-[

Yup. Awfully tough for us to guage what the hell he's going to be like if he isn't getting the starts. I thought for sure Maddon would have him out there against Marcum (righty). Piss me off. :-C

I think it has something to do with Marcum being tougher on lefties. I'll bet he's in there against most right handers.

I wish Jaso could put up weeks like this as his bad weeks:

.125 BA but a .417 OBA, 2 R, and 3 RBI

That's just stupid. :-b

At this point would you peg Wieters or Jaso to have a better last two months? (for my purposes OBP is included)

Wieters has all the hype and potential but Jaso seems to be just about an everyday player with the Rays and usually at the top of the order.
